Abstract

Atmospheric methane (CH4) concentrations have more than doubled over the last two centuries. These increases may contribute to global warming, enhance formation of tropospheric ozone, suppress OH and affect stratospheric ozone. Calculations show that stabilization of CH4 could reduce projected temperature increases and possibly mitigate background tropospheric O3 increases due to increasing levels of CH4.
