Welcome on the Emission Inventory website of BIRA-IASB.

Below you can find an overview of the Emission Inventories provided by the Tropospheric Modelling team of the Royal Belgian Institute for Sapce Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB). To get more information about a dataset or to dowload the data click the link to get to the dedicated page.  We try to improve our datasets continuously therfore we recommend to use the most recently released inventories.
