Global Air Pollutant Emissions EDGAR v4.3.2

In EDGARv4.3.2 emissions are calculated not only for the greenhouse gases per sector and country but also for the air pollutants:
- Ozone precursor gases: Carbon Monoxide (CO), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Non-Methane Volatile Organic Compounds (NMVOC) and Methane (CH4).
- Acidifying gases: Ammonia (NH3), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2).
- Primary particulates: Fine Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5 and Carbonaceous speciation (BC, OC).

The activity data and spatial distribution proxies are the same for the greenhouse gases and for the air pollutants, and are documented by Janssens-Maenhout et al., (ESSD, 2017). For the technology-based emission factors and end-of-pipe reductions we mainly followed the recommendations of the EEA Guidebook (2013), the HTAP_v2 dataset of Janssens-Maenhout et al., (ACP, 2015) and the PEGASOS study of Crippa et al. (ACP, 2016).

Timeseries 1970-2012

For each substance, emissions timeseries (1970-2012) by sector and country are provided in an overview table (.xls).

Notes:
Emission country totals are expressed in kton substance / year.
The IPCC 1996 code is used for specification of the sectors.

 

 

Annual gridmaps 1970-2012

For each substance annual gridmaps (1970-2012) are provided.

Notes:
Emission gridmaps are expressed in ton substance / 0.1degree x 0.1degree / year for the .txt files and in kg substance /m2 /s for the .nc files.

 

 

Annual sector-specific gridmaps (1970-2012) and monthly sector-specific gridmaps (2010)

For each sector annual gridmaps (1970-2012) are provided for all substances.
For each sector monthly gridmaps (2010) are provided for all substances.

Notes:
Emission gridmaps are expressed in ton substance / 0.1degree x 0.1degree / year for annual .txt files and in kg substance /m2 /s for all the .nc files.
The IPCC 1996 code is used for specification of the sectors.

Gridded sector specific emission shares in 2012

In the perspective of providing more insights on the composition of the total emissions and source decomposition within a single gridcell, we provide the emission sector shares at gridcell level as NetCDF files. Emission shares are calculated for each sector of the EDGARv4.3.2 release on total emissions at gridcell level for the year 2012 and for each pollutant.

This type of information is made available to give support for analysis investigating features of the gridded emissions, such as the different sector emission shares for urban and rural locations, or for different countries, and to retrieve the sector composition of total column measurements performed e.g. by satellites. The interpretation and use of the satellite derived data and other type of analysis requires particular attention due to the combined uncertainty related with the spatial allocation in the gridmaps and the calculation of emission ratios of co-emitted pollutants.

Notes:
Emission shares gridmaps are expressed in % / (0.1degree x 0.1degree) for all the .nc files.
The IPCC 1996 code is used for specification of the sectors.
