Description du jeu de données
Dataset descriptionWithin this dataset the SWA flaring emissions of CO, CO2, NO, NO2 and SO2 were estimated, covering the time period March 2012 to August 2016 on a daily basis. The method to derive these emissions is a combination of remote sensing observations and combustion equations, published in Deetz and Vogel (2017). The package contains six inventories (available as ASCII or R binary format), a README and figures illustrating the location of the gas flares and the emission timeseries.
PurposeBy using this dataset it is possible to consider the gas flaring emissions in chemistry modelling explicitly and with a high spatiotemporal resolution.
