BAWLD-CH4: Methane fluxes from Boreal and Arctic Ecosystems M. A. Kuhn, R. K. Varner, D. J. Bastviken, P. Crill, S. MacIntyre, M. R. Turetsky, K. Walter Anthony, A. D. McGuire, and D. Olefeldt

Short summary
Methane (CH4) emissions from the boreal–Arctic region are globally significant, but the current magnitude of annual emissions is not well defined. Here we present a dataset of surface CH4 fluxes from northern wetlands, lakes, and uplands that was built alongside a compatible land cover dataset, sharing the same classifications. We show CH4 fluxes can be split by broad land cover characteristics. The dataset is useful for comparison against new field data and model parameterization or validation.
