No significant increase in long-term CH4 emissions on North Slope of Alaska despite significant increase in air temperature

” Twenty-nine years of measurements show little change in seasonal mean land sector CH4 enhancements, despite an increase in annual mean temperatures.”

“Our results suggest that even the observed short-term temperature sensitivity from the Arctic will have little impact on the global atmospheric CH4 budget in the long term”
