EDGAR v5.0 Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Collection: EDGAR : Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research 

Description

EDGARv5.0 provides emissions of the three main greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4 and N2O) per sector and country. CO2 emissions are provided separately for CO2_excl_short-cycle_org_C and CO2_short-cycle_org_C. Emissions of CO2_excl_short-cycle_org_C include all fossil CO2 sources, such as fossil fuel combustion, non-metallic mineral processes (e.g. cement production), metal (ferrous and non-ferrous) production processes, urea production, agricultural liming and solvents use. Large scale biomass burning with Savannah burning, forest fires, and sources and sinks from land-use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) are excluded.

For the energy related sectors the activity data are mainly based on the energy balance statistics of IEA (2017) (Internet: http://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/energy/co2-emissions-from-fuel-combustion-2017_co2_fuel-2017-en), whereas the activity data for the agricultural sectors originate mainly from FAO (2018) (Internet: http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#home). Additional information can be found in Crippa et al. (2019).

Compared to EDGARv4.3.2 new temporal profiles are included to compute monthly emissions (Crippa et al., 2019, submitted) and new spatial proxies are used to distribute population-related emissions based on the Global Human Settlements Layer product (Pesaresi et al., 2019).
