What does Modeling with GWP*
mean for the global cattle sector?
This document summarizes recently conducted modeling research to better understand GWP*, a relatively new metric to measure the warming equivalent emissions of methane. The modeling confirmed previous studies that found GWP* provides a more accurate evaluation of the global warming impact of methane than does GWP100. Although GWP* has proven to be an excellent planning and forecasting tool, there are limits to its applicability.
