Summary
Abstract: Within the RETRO project, global gridded data sets for anthropogenic and
vegetation fire emissions of several trace gases were generated, covering the
period from 1960 to 2000 with monthly time resolution. Anthropogenic emissions
in the RETRO inventory are derived from the TNO database and the VERITAS
inventory of international ship traffic emissions. Vegetation fire emissions
were constructed from a large variety of sources with the objective to provide
a reasonable estimate of emissions including their seasonal and interannual
variability in the major burning regions of the world.
