Mauricio Osses,


This dataset contains annual exhaust emission inventories of CO, VOC, NOx, PM2.5, CO2, CH4 and BC from on-road transportation in Colombia, for the period 1990–2020, every 5 years. The data is presented as NetCDF4 files, in Gg/y per cell for each specie and year, gridded with a spatial resolution of 0.01° x 0.01° covering the domain 66° 50' – 79° 0' W and 12° 30' N – 4° 13' S.


Steps to reproduce

The inventories are presented as NetCDF4 files, one for each species (BC, CH4, CO, CO2, NOx, PM25 and VOC) and every five years (1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015, 2020). Each filename has the following structure: [ Dataset ]_[ Geographical Coverage ]_[ Resolution LatxLon ]_[ Category ]_[ Year ]_[ Version ].nc
