Summary
Abstract: The fossil fuel emissions are compiled from 23 fuel types of which coal,
lignite brown and diesel form the majority of the emissions. The data are
representative of 1984 emissions. The data is given in tonnes per 1 degree
grid.

The biomass burning emissions are compiled from various sources of
deforestation amounts and estimates of savanna burning. The method used to
calculate these emissions is ... View entire text
