This zip file contains data for performing Global InMAP model runs and evaluations. To the extent that any of the data is covered by third party licenses, it is the responsibility of the user to follow the terms of those licenses. A description of the contents of this directory is below:

'population' directory
Population count data is from the Gridded Population of The World (v4.10) projected to year 2020. The data is in 15x15 arcminute grids, except for in grid cells where the population is above 80,000, where the population data is 30x30 arcseconds.

Regular-grid Global InMAP input data for the year 2005 for use as the "InMAPData" variable in the InMAP configuration file. It was created from GEOS-Chem v.11-01 simulation outputs with the 'inmap preproc' command.

Global InMAP variable grid resolution input data for coords for year 2016 for use as the "VariableGridData" variable in the InMAP configuration file. It was created with the 'inmap grid' command using GlobalInMAPData_v1.ncf and population.shp.

'2016_emissions_v1.0.0' directory
Total PM2.5 and precursor emissions to arrive at total PM2.5 concentrations from Global InMAP. Units for polygonized emissions inputs (shapefiles) are short (US) tons/yr, and units for gridded emissions inputs (NetCDF files) are kg/yr.

'global_emission_changes' directory,, and are gridded emissions for changes in inorganic precursors for comparing Global InMAP and GEOS-Chem. Units are kg/yr.,, and are results for changes in concentrations arising from these changes in emissions for 3 months, 1 month, and 2 months.

'usa_emission_changes' directory
Emissions for comparing Global InMAP and US InMAP (described in Tessum et al., 2017).
Emissions are derived using the United States National Emissions Inventory (NEI) 2014v.1, processed exactly as in Thakrar et al., 2020.
Emissions are coal-powered electricity generation (NEI Source Classification Code: 10100212) and gasoline passenger vehicles (NEI Source Classification Code: 2201210080).
Units are ug/s.
