For my thesis I will be studying the flux of greenhouse gases (CH4, CO2, and N2O), focusing on methane production, released from wetlands, specifically the saline wetlands of Lincoln, NE. Methane is an important greenhouse gas (GHG), and wetlands are the biggest producers of the gas. With time most of the methane will be oxidized into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO2), but meth (Laing, Shreeve, & Pearce, 2008).
