Final Report GlobEmission
At the origin of all air quality issues are the emissions of pollutants. Emission inventories provide essential information on magnitude, type of activity, time evolution and the spatial coverage of the emissions. These inventories are developed for use by the policy makers in order to evaluate progress towards emission abatement measures, and decide on future strategies, and for use in scientific applications as input in urban, regional, continental or global scale models. Unfortunately, traditional emission inventories are often inaccurate or outdated. Within the GlobEmission project (part of Data User Element programme of ESA) we develop new emission estimates from satellite observations of air constituents. The main advantage of these emission estimates are the spatial consistency, high temporal resolution and the rapid availability of these estimates to the user.

The GlobEmission project started at October 2011 and its current phase continued until April 2016. Workshops and User Consultation meetings were organized in November 2012 (The Bilt, Netherlands), December 2013 (Frascati, Italy) and November 2015 (Doha, Qatar), where users were familiarized with the GlobEmission products, and the consortium received important feedback.
