Recently released data by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that year-on-year growth in global atmospheric methane concentrations is now the largest since intensive measurements began in 1983. Methane has been rising rapidly in the atmosphere since 2007. The Continue reading Methane tops a new record in 2020 – a “grand challenge” in Earth Sciences
In our recent study published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, we used data from the GOSAT satellite to quantify emissions of methane from Brazil between 2010-2018. Because of the distinct separation of sources in Brazil (i.e., wetlands are generally not Continue reading Brazil’s methane emissions inferred from satellite data
Our recent study shows how marine emissions of the potent greenhouse gas, nitrous oxide, can be detected in atmospheric concentration measurements from coastal towers. Our work, published in Geophysical Research Letters, looks at nitrous oxide emissions from the “hotspot” Eastern Continue reading Nitrous oxide from hotspot marine systems detected in atmospheric measurements

Listen to the BBC Radio 4 documentary Counting Carbon. In it, I am speaking along with other scientists about the problems associated with greenhouse gas reporting and the implications of this on climate agreements. A write-up of the story is Continue reading BBC Radio 4 Counting Carbon
I was asked to comment on a BBC article reporting on a study published in PNAS, which has found that nitrous oxide emissions from streams (where nitrogen added to the soil can often end up), is much larger than previously thought. The authors Continue reading Comment for BBC report on nitrous oxide from agriculture
