This page describes the biofuel emissions inventories in GEOS-Chem.

NOTE: Depending on the inventory, biofuels are often lumped together with anthropogenic emissions.

Bond et al 2007 inventory

GEOS-Chem uses the Tami Bond et al (2007) inventory for biofuel emissions of black carbon and organic carbon. For more information about this inventory, please see our carbonaceous aerosols wiki page.
