Information for Area Source Data Files

The zipped files provided here are ASCII Grid format files, which can be used in most GIS software. Each zip file contains pollutant-specific gridded emissions for year 2021 by CORINAIR SNAP sectors. Note that some pollutants might not contain emission maps on some sectors (not all sectors generate emissions).

The sectors are labelled as follows:

energyprod - SNAP 01 (Combustion in Energy Production and Transformation)
domcom - SNAP 02 (Combustion in Commercial, Institutional, Residential and Agriculture)
indcom - SNAP 03 (Combustion in Industry)
indproc - SNAP 04 (Production Processes)
offshore - SNAP 05 (Extraction and Distribution of Fossil Fuels)
solvents - SNAP 06 (Solvent Use)
roadtrans - SNAP 07 (Road Transport)
othertrans - SNAP 08 (Other Transport and Mobile machinery)
waste - SNAP 09 (Waste Treatment and Disposal)
agric - SNAP 10 (Agriculture, Forestry and Landuse Change)
nature - SNAP 11 (Nature)
totarea - Total area sources (sum of all the above grids)
total - Total emissions (including point sources)
