ODIAC Fossil fuel emission dataset


  • CO2 emission estimates

    Dr. Gregg Marland, Mr. Matthew Hefner, the Research Institute for Environment, Energy, and Economics (RIEEE), Appalachian State University, Boone, NC, USA. The estimates are available at https://energy.appstate.edu/CDIAC.
    Mr. Thomas Boden and Dr. Robert J. Andres, Carbon Dioxide Information and Analysis Center (CDIAC), Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN, USA (retired).

  • Nightlight data

    Dr. Zhuosen Wang, Terrestrial Information Systems Laboratory, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, USA/Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA.

  • Temporal scaling factor

    Dr. Ray Nassar, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Toronto, Canada.

  • Power plant database

    Power plant locations and emission estimates are primarily based on Carbon Monitoring Action (CARMA) power plant database. CARMA was developed by the Center for Global Development, Washington, DC (project web).The ODIAC team has been improving the power plant emission representations in the ODIAC model in collaboration with:
    Prof. Rostyslav Bun, Lviv Polytechnic National University, Lviv, Ukraine/WSB University, Dąbrowa Gόrnicza, Poland,
    Dr. Iryna Ryzha, Lviv Polytechnic National University, Lviv, Ukraine,
    Dr. Tadanobu Nakayama, NIES, Tsukuba, Japan, and
    The GPPD team at the World Resources Institute (WRI) (project web).
