Methane has the second largest radiative forcing after CO2 . The concentration of CH4 has increased by a factor of 2.5 since preindustrial times, from 722 ppb in 1750 to 1803 ppb in 2011. There is very high confidence that the atmospheric CH4 increase during the Industrial Era is caused by anthropogenic activities [IPCC, AR5 ].

Come join us for an exciting and diverse range of talks around methane from wetland emissions to economics and policy.

Titles and abstracts to follow.
