Why did #methane surge in 2020 ?

Our article just published @Nature shows that the high growth rate of CH4 in 2020 is explained half by decreased OH removal & half by more wetland emissions @ShushiPeng @CEA_Officiel @gcarbonproject @IPSL_outreach … 🧶… Image
We expected in 2020 less anthropogenic emissions from #COVID but in fact the #CH4 growth rate was record high at 15.1 ppt y-1 (@NOAA data ) Image
The #CH4 growth rate results from an imbalance between emissions ( natural and anthropogenic ) and the OH sink in the atmosphere @gcarbonproject Image

Thread/ #Wetlands may seem off-topic for an organisation based in #Africa's #drylands, but the protection & restoration of river ecosystems makes up a big part of our programmes at Tree Aid

Learn more this #WorldWetlandsDay 👇
2/When it does rain in the #Sahel, it often pours, leading to destructive flash floods, riverbank damage & #soilerosion. #Siltation is a major problem in the Sahel too, making rivers dry up quicker in the dry season, and flood faster in the rainy season too

3/ Our riverine projects work with local communities to restore & protect existing #trees along river banks, and adapt #farming methods to reduce siltation

Rivers & streams are a lifeline for these areas, and provide vital many services - read on to learn what we've been doing👇

Not a rocket science. Today is #WorldWetlandsDay.
#Wetlands provide many ecosystem services.

- They replenish the ground water
- Provide habitat to numerous species. From smaller to large predators. It’s their home.

Below is a long-ish thread🧵for some context to this amazing meme from @DrArialShogren and @thats_me_del_p.

TL;DR -- Our words matter. They shape and bias our understanding of the systems we study.

First -- I'm blessed to have great colleagues @UaDeptBSC who put up with my shenanigans.

This conversation started with me giving @thats_me_del_p a hard time about a small grant proposal. The title mentioned "drivers of intermittence."

[2/n] Image
I'm not a big fan of umbrella terms like #sustainability, #connectivity, and now #intermittence.

In #interdisciplinary teams, negotiating a common language is difficult. I actually think its often MORE difficult when we share common terms with slightly diverging definitions

⬆️🌡️in #winters are affecting many taxa worldwide, such as #bats. Hibernating🦇might be forced to arouse & find💧&🦟in the future. But, do bats fly out of the roost during❄️season now? When? How much? And where? Are #wetlands important during this period? Let's see👇 pic: Adrià López-Baucells
2/5 #CWTC21
To understand 🦇#behaviour during ❄️we used #batacoustics and weather information in #wetlands, #ricepaddies, 🌆 areas, & #saltmarshes from one of the biggest Deltas in Western Europe (Ebro Delta). @PDE @parcscat @govern @HumedalesDelta @ecologistescat @FBiodiversidad
3/5 #CWTC21
1- The most recorded #batspecies was #pipistrelluspygmaeus
2- 🦇were active during the 83% of our total recorded nights (469) mainly using #wetlands & 🌆areas
3- We found a threshold value that triggered #batarousals ->11ºC during❄️nights

President @JoeBiden is visiting NY and NJ today to talk about #infrastructure in the wake of flooding. Talk that includes more $ for sea walls, levees, stormwater drains. But to solve flooding, we have to consider how #water behaves.
It can come from the sky, from the sea, and even from up from underground due to hydrological pressure. #ClimateCrisis is showing us a quantity of water our #infrastructure is not built to handle. B/c our concrete water infrastructure is inflexible.
Will @JoeBiden talk about natural #infrastructure? #wetlands, floodplains, and marshes are absorbent and flexible -- and also STORE CARBON to reduce climate change. Yet cities including NYC are building new development on filled-in wetlands.

#WBTC2 #Con2 (1/5)
We've lost >30% of #wetlands worldwide, ecosystems that provide us essential #ecosystemservices. What do we know about the relation between this #threatenedhabitat and 🦇? Detecting gaps in our current knowledge will help upcoming needs for #batconservation.
#WBTC2 #Con2 (2/5)
I reviewed 116 scientific publications to reveal #knowledgegaps. Bat-wetlands studies have barely increase since 1900, mainly focused on species inventory and habitat use, leaving key topics like #pollution #habitatfragmentation #batmigration poorly studied
#WBTC2 #Con2 (3/5)
Mostly of the studies have been carried out on #developedcountries leaving some large areas of wetlands poorly explored. In order to help #landmanagers and #policymakers we provide a new method to identify high priorities areas of study: Bat Knowledge Index

Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Link to paper:…

#sciencetwitter #TwitterNatureCommunity
Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

Eco-restoration of Thazhambur Wetland

"Very often we find that passion determines eco-restoration programmes, but what is also important is the science of it" (1/n)

#wetlands #chennai #restoration
With support from Hinduja Foundation, we embarked on a project to restore and conserve the Thazhambur #wetland and foster responsible use and management of #water resources by local communities on the principles of reduce, reuse and recycle (2/n)
Eco-restoration efforts has resulted in the total recovery and restoration of 30.6 ha of water spread area, consolidation of 1.2 km of the tank bund and increasing wetland holding capacity by 5.3 million c ft of water over 16.46 million c ft existing capacity.

Happy #WorldWetlandsDay! Give it up for Los Angeles' largest and only remaining native wetlands area, the Ballona Wetlands. #Westchester #PlayaDelRey #MarinaDelRey
We do have a few restored or re-created #wetlands areas in the Los Angeles area, most notably the #Malibu Lagoon:
There's also the South Los Angeles #Wetlands Park, opened in 2012, formerly a @metrolosangeles bus yard and #LARy streetcar maintenance facility off of Avalon Blvd:

A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself.
Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air & giving fresh strength to our people.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt

#AmazonRainforest will only be remembered in pictures

We burned our lungs🌎 for #BEEF

#Vegan bc 👇 Image
🌴 #AmazonRainforest Has Lost More Than ▶Ten Million◀ Football Fields of Forest in a Decade
THIS #rainforest is responsible for storing over 180 BILLION tons of carbon
With #deforestation that carbon is released back into the atmosphere

💧 "One-fifth of the world’s fresh #water is in the #AmazonBasin, supplying water to the world by releasing water vapor into the atmosphere that can travel thousands of miles"

Meanwhile governments 🌍🌏🌎 & politicians ignore #AmazonBurning

[1] Reports indicate that the #Venezuelan Floating Storage/Production Vessel, FSO #nabarima, currently located in the #gulfofparia, has approximately 1.2 million barrels of crude oil onboard & the vessel is in distress.

Why is this of concern to #TrinidadandTobago?
[2] The #gulfofparia is a semi-enclosed body of water located between #Trinidad and #Venezuela. The #marine #environment is a very dynamic system. Any oil that is spilled in the #gulfofparia will likely be transported by the currents and reach the shores of both countries.
[3] Presently, the #gulfofparia supports important #fisheries 🐟🦐 Many #fisherfolk in #Trinidad harvest #fish and #shellfish from the #gulfofparia🛥️ The livelihood of these #fisherfolk are dependent on a healthy marine environment.

China has always prioritized ecological progress and has rolled out strong policies and actions. For the last 10 years, China has topped the world in forest resource increase, with more than 70 million hectares of land afforested.
We have made long-term, large-scale efforts to combat sandification and desertification, and we have effectively protected and restored the #wetlands. We now have one of the world's largest banks of genetic resources reserve.
90% of terrestrial #ecosystem types and 85% of key wild animal populations are under effective protection.

One of the attractions of the San Joaquin Marsh is an island in the middle of one of the ponds that is covered with White Pelicans and Double Crested Cormorants. I have a confession about the cormorants: I have...
...never been close enough or had a powerful enough lens to see the tiny wisps of hair that constitute the "crests" on these birds. There are those who doubt that they exist. As far as I know there are only a handful of photos showing the crests...
...and even they are not impressive. The best practice is to assume that any cormorant that you see in the San Joaquin Marsh is a Double Crested and check it of your life list as one. I get many questions about the cormorants...

I'm about to put the pictures of the fire in the wetlands to bed (they were beginning to look alike). Starting tomorrow I am going to inflict cat photos on you. And some selfies.

But these are not what is making me unpopular tonight...
...I spoke up about people making an addict a hero. Look, I said, I resisted the peer pressure, the desire to alleviate boredom, self medication, etc. and I did not become an addict. Well they said "your high self confidence..."
-- my self confidence was never high and it is not high now. Every week my therapist and my wife tell me that I am not as bad as I think I am. People who know me well know that belief in myself is not my trademark. I have never...
