ODIAC Fossil fuel emission dataset

Collaborators / Acknowledgments

  • CO2 emission estimates

    Dr. Robert J. Andres, Carbon Dioxide Information and Analysis Center (CDIAC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory, TN, USA.

  • Nightlight data processing

    Dr. Christopher D. Elvidge, NOAA National Geophysical Data Center, Boulder, CO, USA.
    Dr. Miguel O. Román, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, USA.

  • Temporal scaling factor

    Dr. Ray Nassar, Environment Canada, Toronto, Canada.

  • Power plant database

    Power plant locations and emission estimates were based on Carbon Monitoring Action (CARMA) power plant database. CARMA was developed by the Center for Global Development, Washington, DC. The dataset is available at http://www.carma.org/.

  • EDGAR dataset

    International ship tracks used in the ODIAC dataset were adopted from the version 4.1 of EDGAR emission data. EDGAR data is developed by European Commission, Joint Research Center (JRC)/Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL). The dataset is available at http://edgar.jrc.ec.europa.eu/.

  • AERO2k aircraft emission dataset

    Aircraft flight patterns were adopted from the AERO2k aviation emission inventory. AERO2k was developed at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK (project web).
