Title: Seasonal variations in methane flux and [delta][sup 13]CH[sub 4] values for rice paddies in Japan and their implications

Abstract

An important source of methane to the atmosphere is from rice paddy fields. This paper presents isotopic data and interpretations from two seasons of measurements of rice paddy methane flux from fields located in Japan. Possible causes for the variation in the stable carbon isotopic signal of methane throughout the growing season are suggested. The consequences for developing a global isotopic atmospheric methane budget are also discussed. 54 refs., 3 figs., 2 tabs.
