Organic crusts on liquid manure storage tanks harbor ammonia- and nitrite-resistant methane oxidizers and may significantly reduce methane emissions. Methane oxidation potential (0.6 mol CH4m-2 day-1) peaked during fall and winter, after 4 months of crust development. Consequences for methane mitigation potential of crusts are discussed. © 2013, American Society for Microbiology.
