EDGAR v4.1 anthropogenic emissions

From Geos-chem
Jump to: navigation, search

EDGAR v4.1 was never introduced as a standard inventory in GEOS-Chem. Qiang Zhang provided these instructions on how to include the EDGAR v4.1 inventory into GEOS-Chem as a research option. Much of this information is obsolete but we will preserve it for future reference.

Use EDGAR v4.1 in GEOS-Chem

EDGAR v4.2 emissions (read via the HEMCO emissions component are now the default in GEOS-Chem v10-01 and newer versions. We leave this information for reference.

EDGAR v4.1 emissions of CO, NOx and SO2 from 1970-2005 were prepared for GEOS-Chem model. It is available on a yearly basis with 1x1 degree spatial resolution. This inventory is not included in standard model yet but can be accessed here. It has been tested in GEOS-Chem v09-01-01 with 1-year full-chemistry benchmark for 2005.

To use EDGAR v.4.1 inventory, please download and the patch codes and data from the following URLs:

  1. http://166.111.42.46/EDGARV4.1_201111.zip
  2. http://166.111.42.46/Patch_EDGAR4_120702.zip

NOTE: for edgar_mod.f in the patch folder, please comment out line 1172 and 1173 in order to prevent double counting of international aviation for CO.

The patch folder contains 6 files: edgar_mod.f, biofuel_mod.f, input_mod.f, logical_mod.f, sulfate_mod.f, and input.geos. In input.geos, USE_EDGAR4 is a logical variable for user to choose EDGAR v.4.1 as anthropogenic emission inventory. Since biofuel emissions have been included in EDGAR v.4.1, if use EDGAR v.4.1, default biofuel emissions in GC model will be zero out automatically. If you would like to use shipping emissions from EDGAR v.4.1, also set LEDGARSHIP to True. Aircraft emissions in EDGAR v.4.1 were not implemented for NOx and SO2.

EDGAR v.4.1 emission data includes the following sectors.

EDGAR_V41_IPCC_ 1A1_ENE
Energy (fuel combustion).
EDGAR_V41_IPCC _1A2_2
Industry combustion and process emissions (fuel combustion).
EDGAR_V41_IPCC_1A3b_c_e
Ground Transport (road transport, rail transport and other transport, fuel combustion).
EDGAR_V41_IPCC_1A3d1
International shipping (fuel combustion).
EDGAR_V41_IPCC_1A3d_SHIP
Inland Waterways (fuel combustion).
EDGAR_V41_IPCC_1A4_5
Residential and other combustion (fuel combustion).
EDGAR_V41_IPCC_1B
Fuel production.
EDGAR_V41_IPCC_6A_6C
