Abstract

Chemical simulations in most of the atmospheric chemistry models require surface emissions in a specific form (gridded), which are often not available. Simple interpolation of broader level emissions to obtain gridded data may lead to erroneous results. An attempt has been made in this paper to develop a geographical information system (GIS) based methodology for distributing the emissions from a broader level inventory to finely gridded emission values, considering local micro-level details and activity data. Given the importance of Carbon Monoxide emissions in ozone pollution chemistry over India, an emission inventory for CO from various sources for India has been used to demonstrate the GIS-based gridding methodology.
