Emissions of CH4 - from Agriculture (Model Estimations, RIVM-MNP)Entry ID: geodata_1156
Abstract: A global emissions source database called EDGAR has been developed jointly by TNO and RIVM to meet the urgent need of atmospheric chemistry and climate modellers and the need of policy-makers. The EDGAR database was to estimate the annual emissions of direct and indirect greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O; CO, NOx, non-methane VOC; SO2), including ozone-depleting compounds (halocarbons) for 1990 on a ... regional and grid basis. To meet the aim of establishing the global emissions from both anthropogenic and biogenic sources, a complete set of data would be required to estimate the total source strength of the various gases with a 1x1 degree resolution (altitude resolution of 1 km), as agreed upon in the Global Emissions Inventory Activity (GEIA) of the International Atmospheric Chemistry Programme (IGAC).
Emissions of CH4 - from Agriculture (RIVM). Emissions of CH4 (Methane) from the agricultural sector include emissions from:
Rice cultivation (IPCC 4C);
Animal breeding: enteric fermentation and animal waste management (IPCC 4A and 4B,);
Savannah burning (IPCC 4E);
Agricultural waste burning (IPCC 4F).
The emissions from deforestation (IPCC 5A1) and vegetation fires (IPCC 5A2,3) are not included.
