- Matthew's GISS Methane from Rice Cultivation
High-resolution global databases on the geographic and seasonal
distribution of rice cultivation and associated methane emission,
compiled by Matthews et al. (1991), have been archived for public
use. These data were developed to evaluate the role of rice
cultivation in the annual emission of methane from terrestrial
sources. The databases represent an integration of extensive
information on the cultivation of rice in all 103 rice-producing
countries of the world and reflect conditions for 1984.
The suite of 1-degree latitude/longitude resolution databases
includes locations of rice cultivation, monthly arrays of actively
growing rice areas, countries and political subdivisions, and
monthly arrays of methane emission from rice cultivation.
