Abstract: Methane (CH4) is the third most abundant GHG in the atmosphere. The concentration of CH4 in the atmosphere is of great concern as its 100 year time period GWP has increased from 25 to 28. CH4 plays an important role in atmospheric chemistry as it contributes to global warming. Global CH4 trends began to increase from 2007 and the recent increase in atmospheric CH4 has been attributed to biogenic sources particularly from the tropics. These biogenic sources include emissions resulting from methanogenesis from rice cultivation, enteric fermentation and wetlands.
