EDGAR_temporal_profiles_r1: New high resolution temporal profiles in EDGAR

Collection: EDGAR : Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research 

Description

Human activities and the corresponding anthropogenic emissions into the atmosphere show marked temporal variations, from inter-annual to hourly levels. Yearly emissions might be unable, for example, to adequately reflect heavy pollution episodes, seasonal trends, or any process which is inherently time-dependant, thus undermining the capability to determine the causes and to take adequate mitigation measure. Moreover, chemical transport models (CTMs) require the use of spatio-temporally distributed emission data, to simulate the dynamics of photochemical compounds in the atmosphere and pollution loadings during different periods of the year and during different hours of the day.

  • High resolution temporal profiles have been developed within the EDGAR database, allowing the disaggregation of the annual emission into monthly and hourly emissions, with country- and sector-specific temporal profiles for regulated gaseous and particulate air pollutants, as well as for greenhouse gases. An additional novelty of this methodology is the development of time-varying yearly profiles for sectors showing a strong seasonal pattern over different years (e.g. power generation and small combustion).
