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 CO2. 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.
