Short summary
Multiple natural and anthropogenic emissions sources contribute to the global atmospheric methane budget. Methane emissions are constrained, in part, by inverse (top-down) models that incorporate data on the concentration and stable carbon and hydrogen isotopic ratios of methane from different sources. To aid in these modeling efforts, we present a geochemical database comprising over 10 000 discrete samples from fossil and non-fossil fuel sources of methane.
