Introduction: Companion Virtual Issue to L&O Special Issue on Methane

Methane VI Image

In 2016, Limnology and Oceanography published the special issue "Methane Emissions from Oceans, and Freshwater Habitats: New Perspectives and Feedbacks on Climate." The special issue included 26 papers highlighting research progress and current science on methane production, consumption, and emissions from freshwater, estuarine and marine systems. In this companion virtual issue, we have compiled 22 of the most frequently cited historical papers about methane from the L&O suite of journals in one convenient location. This virtual issue includes papers on estimating and measuring methane, gas transfer velocities, biological and geochemical controls on methane oxidation, methantrophic communities, methane bubbles and evasion to the atmosphere, contributions of methane to the food webs, and, methane emissions from a diverse range of aquatic systems including streams, rivers, lakes, floodplains, sediments and estuaries. We hope this resource will be helpful to researchers and educators interested in methane dynamics in aquatic systems.
