CO2 Emission Estimates from Fossil-Fuel Burning, Hydraulic Cement Production, and Gas Flaring for 1995 on a 1 Degree Grid, CDIAC/NDP058AEntry ID: CDIAC_NDP058A
Abstract: The Numeric Data Package (NDP-058A) presents the gridded (one degree latitude by one degree longitude) summed emissions from fossil-fuel burning, hydraulic cement production and gas flaring for 1995. Analogous to the data presented in NDP-058 (See:
includes estimates for 1950, 1960, 1970, 1980, and 1990), national
emission estimates ... from the 1995 United Nations Energy Statistics
Database (U.N., 1997), hydraulic cement production estimates from the U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Mines (USDO, 1995), and supplemental data on gas flaring from the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Information Administration were processed by Marland et al. (1997) following the methods of Marland and Rotty (1984). The only change in the methodology used to calculate the national CO2 emission estimates for 1995 was the implementation of separate carbon coefficients for soft and hard coal; the emissions estimates in NDP058 were calculated using a single carbon coefficient to characterize the
carbon content of all coals.
To distribute the national emission estimates from 1995 within each country, the population data base developed by Li (1996a) and
documented by CDIAC (DB1016: Li, 1996;
http://cdiac.esd.ornl.gov/ndps/db1016.html) was used as
proxy. Previously, Andres et al. (1996) had used a 1984 human population data set (Goddard Institute of Space Studies, Lerner et
al., 1988) as proxy for gridding the 1950 through 1990 emission
estimates within countries. The structure of the gridded 1995 emission data file differs, consequently, from the 1950-1990 gridded emission files (CDIAC: NDP-058) in that individual grid cells may have been partitioned into more than one country analogous to Li's population
This database (NDP-058A) and the related NDP-058 and NDP-030/R8 are available free of charge from CDIAC.
