Methane has been measured in air samples collected as part of the NOAA CMDL Carbon Cycle Group Cooperative Air Sampling Network since 1983. The data from each site are used to determine two important parameters that are useful in constraining the global CH4 budget: seasonal cycles and the latitude gradient. Seasonal cycles and the latitude gradient are tabulated and shown graphically. Interannual variations in both parameters are quantified as standard deviations.
