Global Emissions EDGAR v4.2 FT2012 (November 2014)

In EDGAR v4.2 FT2012 emissions are calculated for the greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and N2O from 1970 to 2012 based on the energy balance statistics of IEA (2013). In the table underneath the emission timeseries per substance and per country can be downloaded. For a description of the data we refer to UNEP emissions gap report (2014): Chapter 2..

Notes on table entries:
- the emission country totals are provided in kton (Gg) substance / year
- the GHG emission timeseries are expressed in CO2 equivalents, using the GWP 100 metrics of SAR
