Studies were conducted to precisely clarify the process of methane transport in rice plants, and also to contribute to the development of models of methane transport from the rhizosphere to the atmosphere. This paper describes these studies which include the determination of the seasonal and interannual variations in methane flux and concentration in soil water at a rice paddy field, and the diurnal changes in methane flux from a rice paddy in relation to soil temperature.
