EU network of mesocosms facilities for research on marine and freshwater ecosystems open for global collaboration.

Aquatic mesocosm research reveals methane emissions from shallow lakes may be significantly underestimated

Evidence from experimental lakes shows the combination of nutrient enrichment and warming has a synergistic effect on rates of methane bubble production and release.

The new study is published in the Scientific Journal, Nature Climate:

Synergy between nutrients and warming enhances methane ebullition from experimental lakes. Thomas A. Davidson, Joachim Audet, Erik Jeppesen, Frank Landkildehus, Torben L. Lauridsen, Martin Søndergaard & Jari Syväranta, Nature Climate Changevolume 8, pages156–160 (2018)
