GMES Services and Emission Inventories workshop October 2011 ETC/ACM Technical Paper 2011/13

22 Dec 2011

The aim of this report is to synthesise the conclusions and discussions that where held during the workshop and to present insights in data and data flows to improve understanding, assessment and decision making on atmospheric emissions (air pollutants and greenhouse gases) and to list requirements on how to improve the linkages between datasets and emission and modelling communities. An important feedback from the participants was the usefulness of exchanging methodological views, insight in applied data sources, and especially to put GMES in perspective of European and national scientific and regulatory activities when it comes to emissions of air pollutant of greenhouse gases, also in relation to Climate and Air Quality legislation.
