EDGAR - Archived datasets
EDGARv4.0 (published in 2009) includes country- and sector-specific emissions of the greenhouse gases: CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs and SF6. With a technology-based approach this dataset combines scientific information and data from international statistics on energy production and consumption, industrial manufacturing, agricultural production, waste treatment and disposal and burning of biomass to provide a complete historical emission trend from 1970 until 2005 for all countries in the world in a comparable and consistent manner. The emissions are gridded for each of the gases and all years.
EDGARv32-FT2000 (published in 2005) comprises global anthropogenic emissions for the year 2000 of Kyoto Protocol greenhouse gases CO2, CH4, N2O, and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6) and of the air pollutants CO, NMVOC, NOx and SO2 (precursor gases for ozone and aerosols). The dataset is based on the EDGAR 3.2 estimates for 1995 and prepared by trend analyses at country level for each standard source category of EDGAR 3.2. (Olivier et al., 2005). Dataset developed by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (MNP, former RIVM)) and the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC).
EDGARv32 (published 2001) provides emission of direct greenhouse gases for the 1970-1995 period and for ozone precursors and SO2 for the 1990-1995 period by country and on 1x1 degree grid (Olivier et al., 2001; Olivier and Berdowski, 2001). Dataset developed by the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM) and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO).
EDGAR-HYDE (published 1999). Based on EDGAR v2 and the History Database of the Global Environment (HYDE) global anthropogenic emissions for the period 1890-1990 by 13 world regions and on 1 x 1 degree grid have been constructed (Van Aardenne et al., 2001). Dataset developed by the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM) and Utrecht University (UU).
EDGARv2 (published 1996) provided global annual emissions for the year 1990 of greenhouse gases, precursor gases and ozone depleting substances by country and on 1x1 degree grid (Olivier et al., 1996; 1999). This dataset was developed by the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM) and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) in collaboration with the Global Emission Inventory Activity (GEIA) of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP).
The mission of the JRC is to provide customer-driven scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. As a service of the European Commission, the JRC functions as a reference centre of science and technology for the Union. Close to the policy-making process, it serves the common interest of the Member States, while being independent of special interests, whether private or national.
