Monthly global methane emissions from natural wetlands modelled by JULES with dynamic vegetation (1980-2014) v1.0

This dataset is a model output from the JULES land surface model driven with the Watch Forcing Data methodology applied to Era-Interim (WFDEI) data. It provides monthly global methane emissions from natural wetlands on 0.5 x 0.5 degree grid between 1980-2014. It includes the following variables:

- fch4_wetl: modelled methane flux from natural wetland, in mg CH4 m-2 day-1

- fwetl: fraction of wetland

- cs: soil carbon in each of these four soil carbon pools: decomposable plant material, resistant plant material, microbial biomass and humus), in kg m-2

- t_soil: sub-surface temperature of the four modelled soil layers (0-0.1 m, 0.1-0.35 m, 0.35-1.0 m and 1.0-2.0 m), in K
