We are providing CH4 fluxes from the LPJ-wsl global wetland model as part of activities within the MAIOLICA II project. In particular, we will focus on tropical CH4 emissions from both natural wetlands and from wildfires.

Project Goals:

A. Improving satellite inundation extent

B. Coupling of TOPMODEL
– Elevation data
– CTI approach

– Calibration

C. Permafrost

D. Tropical peatland formation

E. CMIP5 simulations
