D-EMIS: Emissions


Different ranges of emission fluxes have been proposed by several studies, which have provided emissions at different spatial and temporal scales. Within D-EMIS, different datasets are being gathered from the different MACC sub-projects, as well as from publicly available inventories.

D-EMIS is working on the harmonization, evaluation and integration of these emissions distributions. Anthropogenic and natural emissions are considered. D-EMIS is also working with G-GHG on the use of inverse modelling techniques to improve and evaluate surface emissions. The evaluation of biomass burning emissions is performed in collaboration with D-FIRE.

D-EMIS is also preparing the emissions dataset used in the MACC reanalyses by the different MACC sub-projects.

The Team

  • Claire Granier, UPMC (University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France) : coordination, global emissions
  • Hugo Denier van der Gon and Tinus Pulles, TNO (TNO, Utrecht, The Netlerlands): European Emissions
  • Peter Bergamaschi, JRC (Joint Research Center, Ispra, Italy): flux inversion
  • Frederic Chevallier, CEA (Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement, Gif-sur-Yvette, France): flux inversion

Emissions data

  • The global and most regional emissions under evaluation can be found in the GEIA-ACCENT emissions portal.
  • The European MACC emissions can be found in the TNO ftp emissions ftp site.
