Ultraportable greenhouse gas detectors enable new research into lake methane emissions

Professor Kam Tang’s recent study in Germany has featured in an article in Environmental Monitor as part of his research into lake methane emissions.

Professor Kam TangOf all the heat-trapping gases in the Earth’s atmosphere, none has drawn the attention of the public and policy makers like carbon dioxide. But new research enabled by advanced greenhouse gas detectors suggests that the scientific community should keep a closer eye on methane released from a seemingly unlikely source, clean oligotrophic lakes.   Read the article here.
