Abstract: REPORTS have established that among the greenhouses gases methane is one of the most dangerous and most powerful. Its contribution to global warming is estimated to be about 18% and it has 20 times higher global warming potential than CO<sub>2</sub>. The concentration of atmospheric methane has increased steadily during the last few decades due to several reasons like increasing temperature, over precipitation, construction of new dams, etc.
