I have downloaded the new EDGAR v4.3 data (http://edgar.jrc.ec.europa.eu/overview.php?v=431) and initially implemented it to GEOS-Chem. The new EDGAR data will include OC and EC emissions for the first time, covering more than ten sectors and the year 1970-2010. The data I developed include annual emissions and seasonality scale factors for each species and each sector.

Sector information

Aviation and ship emissions

Aviation and shipping emissions are not included, since it is hard to spatially assign the total emissions of international aviation and shipping in the time series data.
