Abstract
&lt;strong&gt;Abstract.&lt;/strong&gt; We investigated the relative importance of CH&lt;sub&gt;4&lt;/sub&gt; and CO&lt;sub&gt;2&lt;/sub&gt; fluxes from soil and termite mounds at four different sites in the tropical savannas of northern Australia near Darwin and assessed different methods to indirectly predict CH&lt;sub&gt;4&lt;/sub&gt; fluxes based on CO&lt;sub&gt;2&lt;/sub&gt; fluxes and internal gas concentrations. The annual flux from termite mounds and surrounding soil was dominated by CO&lt;sub&gt;2&lt;/sub&gt; with large variations among sites. On a carbon dioxide equivalent (CO&lt;sub&gt;2&lt;/sub&gt;-e) basis, annual CH&lt;sub&gt;4&lt;/sub&gt; flux esti...
