Methane emissions from an anaerobic swine lagoon

Methane emissions from an anaerobic swine lagoon

Atmospheric Environment 33(22): 3627-3633

Gaseous methane (CH4) emissions from a swine waste holding lagoon were determined periodically during the year. Micrometeorological techniques were used in order that emission rates from the lagoon were measured under ambient conditions with little disturbance to the natural environment. During the cold winter measurement period. CH4 fluxes were linearly related to lagoon water temperature below 22 degrees C (r = 0.87).
