This is a composite data set of global emissions developed by Qiang Zhang, Zifeng Lu, and David Streets at Argonne National Laboratory, with the help of Mian Chin (NASA/GSFC), Louisa Emmons (NCAR), and Zig Klimont and Janusz Cofala (IIASA). We have tried to include the most recent data available, so that emissions are as representative of current emissions as they can be. The purpose of the dataset is to support ARCTAS pre-mission planning. Following the mission, a second dataset will be prepared for post-mission analysis that provides more coordination across species and time and reflects updated calculations of emissions in those regions most influencing the Arctic.

This emission inventory was prepared by Qiang Zhang, Zifeng Lu, and David Streets at 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 at the University of Iowa ACESS website, under the direction of Gregory Carmichael, Principal Investigator of this project.
