Short summary
We measured concentrations of the greenhouse gases methane and nitrous oxide in rivers from the western Congo Basin (Republic of Congo). All rivers studied were strong sources of methane to air but they ranged from minor sources to minor sinks for nitrous oxide. Our estimated emissions to air agreed with existing estimates for sub-Saharan African rivers, supportive of the growing consensus that African river systems are a major contributor to the global freshwater source of greenhouse gases.
