Global Carbon Fluxes from Livestock

Total livestock methane emissions in 2011

Total livestock methane emissions in 2011, downscaled to 0.05 x 0.05 degree resolution, for the globe (figure from Wolf et al. 2017).

Researchers with NASA's Carbon Monitoring System calculated the annual carbon fluxes associated with global livestock feed and emissions.
