A strategic assessment of methane and nitrous oxide measurements in the marine environment
The oceans are a net source of the major greenhouse gases, however in contrast to carbon dioxide, there has been little coordination of oceanic methane and nitrous oxide measurements. The scientific community has recently embarked on a series of capacity building exercises to improve the interoperability of dissolved methane and nitrous oxide measurements. This manuscript derives from an Ocean Carbon & Biogeochemistry-sponsored and SOLAS-supported workshop held in October 2018, which discussed the challenges and opportunities for oceanic methane and nitrous oxide research in the near future. The manuscript is a reflection of the workshop's content with each section reflecting the different topics discussed during the meeting.
