Greenhouse Gas Research Group
MAMM – Methane and
other Greenhouse Gases in the Arctic: Measurements, Process Studies and
The Arctic is an important source of various greenhouse
gases, and particularly methane. This is a short-lived gas which remains in the
atmosphere for just nine years, meaning that a reduction in emissions could
produce a measurable reduction in atmospheric greenhouse gases very quickly.
MAMM therefore aims to quantify the anthropogenic and
natural sources of greenhouse gases – particularly methane – in the Arctic,
using data from satellites as well as observations made on the ground and from
ships and aircraft.
