A., Steinbacher, M., and Dlugokencky, E.: Inverse modelling of European CH4 emissions during 2006–2012 using different inverse models and reassessed atmospheric observations, Atmos. Chem. Phys., 18, 901-920, https://doi.org/10.5194/acp-18-901-2018, 2018.

This paper presents inverse modelling estimates of European methane (CH4) emissions for 2006–2012 based on a new quality-controlled and harmonised in situ data set from 18 European atmospheric monitoring stations.

 Figure 3aAnnual total CH4 emissions derived from inversions for northern, western, eastern, and southern Europe, and for EU-28 (coloured symbols; bars show estimated 2σ uncertainties). For comparison, anthropogenic CH4 emissions reported to UNFCCC (black line; grey range: 2σ uncertainty estimate based on National Inventory Reports), and from EDGARv4.2FT-InGOS (black stars) are shown. Furthermore, the blue lines show wetland CH4 emissions from the WETCHIMP ensemble of seven models (mean, blue solid line; median, blue dashed line; minimum–maximum range, light-blue range). The previous estimates of total CH4 emissions from Bergamaschi et al. (2015) for 2006 and 2007 are shown within the yellow rectangles.
