Global Greenhouse Gases Emissions EDGAR v4.3.2

In EDGARv4.3.2 emissions are calculated for the three main greenhouse gases per sector and country. For the energy related sectors the activity data are mainly based on the energy balance statistics of IEA (2014) (Internet: http://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/energy/co2-emissions-from-fuel-combustion-2014_co2_fuel-2014-en), whereas the activity data for the agricultural sectors originate mainly from FAO (2014) (Internet: http://faostat3.fao.org/faostat-gateway/go/to/download/Q/*/E). Additional information can be found in Janssens-Maenhout et al., (ESSD, 2017).

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.
