Natural and Anthropogenic Methane Sources, New England, USA, 1990-1994

This data set contains an inventory of natural and anthropogenic methane emissions for all counties in the six New England states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. The inventory represents a snapshot in time (circa 1990-1994) and provides emission estimates for multiple sources including wetlands, landfills, ruminant animals, residential wood combustion, fossil fuel combustion and use, animal manure, wastewater treatment, and natural gas transmission pipelines. Also included is the uptake or sink of methane in relatively well-drained upland soils.
