Project: Verifying Emissions of Climate Forcers (EYE-CLIMA, HORIZON 101081395)


Emissions of a set of climate relevant trace constituents have been generated using IIASA’s GAINS model, which can serve as prior information for atmospheric inversions. Compounds covered are non-CO2 greenhouse gases (methane, nitrous oxide and a selection of six fluorinated gases, specifically HFC-125, HFC-134a, HFC-143a, HFC-23, HFC-32 and SF6) and black carbon aerosol. Data are provided in NetCDF format annually for the time range 1990 – 2020 and with monthly resolution (fluorinated gases start from 2005 and have annual resolution). Spatially, data covers the European Union plus the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Norway, resolved on an 0.1°×0.1° grid. Emissions are attributed to the respective source categories according to the GNFR code. Uncertainty estimates have been added, also by source category, based on emission inventory experience. Conceptually, the emission inventories generated are consistent with national inventories, i.e., with similar methodology and also excluding natural emissions or emissions from international activities, however, they have been established with harmonized approaches for all countries.
