Compilation of paleo-climatology data on methane, carbon dioxide and temperature dating back 420,000 years
Natural and anthropogenic methane sources, according to the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
The reason for this is not yet fully understood. As can also be seen, the amount of methane varies significantly within each year, e.g., with the season.
