Abstract

Both our understanding of the global carbon cycle and our ability to monitor and evaluate efforts to mitigate anthropogenic emissions of CO2 depend on our ability to estimate the magnitude of these anthropogenic emissions. Emissions are generally estimated from data on fossil-fuel use and derive uncertainty both from the fuel0use data and from the data required to convert this to CO2 emissions. Without independent data to verify emissions estimates, we examine some indicators of the uncertainty in emissions estimates.
