This page provides a description and a link to a "Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR)" database that provides information needed when modeling exposure levels or performing exposure assessment.

Short Description

Provides global emission inventories of direct and indirect greenhouse gases from anthropogenic sources including halocarbons and aerosols both on a per country and region basis as well as on a grid. Gases included are CO2, CH4, N2O and HFCs, PFCs and SF6 and the precursor gases CO, NOx, NMVOC and SO2.
