Black Carbon Emission Data Base for Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Studies from the Global Emissions Inventory Activity (GEIA)

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Global Emissions Inventory Activity (GEIA) is an activity of the
International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Core Project of the
International Geosphere-Biosphere Program (IGBP). The focus of GEIA
is to make global emissions available on a one degree grid.

A global data base of black carbon emissions to the atmosphere from
fossil fuel combustion has been compiled for atmospheric ... View entire text
