Global Emissions World

  • Biogenic isoprene emissions available at 0.5x0.5 degree resolution in NetCdf file format.
  • Emissions are derived from source inversion using the adjojnt of the IMAGESv2 global chemistry-transport model (Stavrakou et al., 2009) constrained by tropospheric HCHO column densities from the GOME-2 satellite instrument (De Smedt et al. 2012). HCHO data are publicly available at the TEMIS website.
  • The algorithm is described in the Algorithm Theoretical Baseline Document (cf. Section 4.1).
  • Evaluation of the biogenic emission estimates against independent data is presented in the Project Validation Report version 2 (cf. Sections 3.1.2 & 3.2.2) and the Project Validation Report version 3 (cf. Section 3.1.2).
