gcb2444-sup-0001-supplinfo.docWord document2761KFigure S4. Dependency of daily methane (CH4) uptake (f, mg C m-2 d-1) on daily mean soil (5 cm) temperature (T, °C) and soil (0–6 cm) moisture (m, % v/v) at investigated steppes. The data of CH4 uptake fluxes, soil temperature and moisture are collected from different site sets and parabolic mesh graphs are plotted according to the multiple polynomial regression equations shown as follows: (a) SUG79 and SCG: f=0.74+0.04×T+0.05×T2-0.0003×m-0.0025×m2r2=0.71 P<0.001. (b) LUG99 and LWG01: f=0.33+0.03×T+0.06×T2-0.0004×m-0.0015×m2r2=0.55 P<0.001. (c) L1, M1 and H1: f=0.62+0.04×T+0.05×T2-0.0003×m-0.0016×m2r2=0.76 P<0.001. (c) L2, M2 and H2: f=0.32+0.03×T+0.07×T2-0.0004×m-0.0021×m2r2=0.78 P<0.001.
