This is the blog of the MAMM project, which stands for Methane in the Arctic: Measurements and Modelling. We are a team of scientists from UK universities and research institutes, and we will write blog posts here about our field work during summer 2013, and about our work back at the lab/desk once we’re back home.

The aim of the project is to find out more about the greenhouse gas methane, specifically in the European Arctic. We will take ground and air-based measurements in our field work, and use computer models to try and understand what’s going on. For a brief introduction to this blog, see this post, and for a slightly longer introduction, see this post. For more information about the project, please see our page on the NERC Arctic Research Programme website. To see where we flew the research aircraft in 2012, see the Arctic Research Programme map.
