Asia Emissions for 2006 for INTEX-B now available

This inventory is available for download

This emission inventory was prepared by Qiang Zhang and David G. Streets, Decision and Information Sciences Division, Argonne National Laboratory, for the INTEX-B project of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). For provision of some local inventories we express our gratitude to Akiyoshi Kannari, Independent Researcher, Tokyo, Japan; Zbigniew Klimont, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, Laxenburg, Austria; Il-Soo Park, Meteorological Research Institute, Seoul, Republic of Korea; Shekar Reddy, UK Met Office Hadley Centre, Exeter, UK; and Fung-Luh Yeh of the Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration. The China emission inventory was developed in collaboration with He Kebin, Chen Dan, and Lei Yu of Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Gridded emissions can be accessed here.

For further information, please contact dstreets@anl.gov or zhangq@anl.gov.

The inventory includes anthropogenic emissions of SO2, NOx, CO, VOC (speciation available for SAPRC99), PM10, PM2.5, black carbon (BC), and organic carbon (OC) for Asia for the year 2006, separated by each sector (power, industrial, residential, transport). Figures 1 and 2 show the gridded total anthropogenic BC and CO, as examples. The inventory is available as a comma separated variable with 0.5° resolution.

The inventory does not yet include Far East Russia, but as the information becomes available it will be released

Important changes in emission have taken place since the 2000 Trace P emissions. The changes are summarizes below. A manuscript describing the new emissions is in preparation.
