The document presents an overview of techniques and technologies that will be important in defining the flux of biogenic gases from terrestrial and marine surfaces. A broad range of analytical methodologies applicable to the measurement of biogenic gas emissions are reviewed. These methodologies include those best suited to characterizing the key environmental, physicological, and physicochemical variables that combine to determine biogenic gas fluxes from particular plants and/or soil systems, in addition to those techniques beter suited to providing validation of predictive models. Emerging technologies are also discussed that may be used in the near future to ascertain emission rates on landscape, regional, and global scales.
