Contributing around 164 Tg of methane to atmospheric methane annually alone; wetlands are the biggest contributing factor of atmospheric methane in the world, wetlands remain a major area of concern with respect to climate change.

This high level of water saturation as well as warm weather is the cause of the high levels of methane production.
