Weekly/diurnal emissions can be modeled by multiplying the TIMIES temporal scaling factors developed by Dr. Ray Nassar at Environment Canada and colleagues, to monthly emission fields (Temporal Improvements for Modeling Emissions by Scaling, Nassar et al. 2013). The scaling factor is defined on a 0.25 x 0.25 degree. The data can be downloaded from the web site of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
