Short summary
We used a process-based model to investigate the sensitivities of pan-Arctic wetland methane emissions to climate factors, as a function of climate. Over the period 1960-2006, temperature was the dominant driver of trends in emissions. Wetlands north of 60N were temperature-limited, and wetlands south of 60N latitude were water-limited. Projected future warming will cause water-limited wetlands to expand northward over the next century, lessening the role of temperature in the future.
