Monthly aerosol emissions and GHG concentration projections from 2020-2025: modified SSP2-4.5 to account for COVID-19 impacts on sector activity
This repository holds the netcdf files for emissions and concentrations projected by the scenario SSP2-4.5, from the Scenario4MIPs database (https://esgf-node.llnl.gov/search/input4mips/), modified by the country and sector activity levels associated with lockdown, projected out for 5 years after 2020. The details of these activity estimates are available from https://github.com/Priestley-Centre/COVID19_emissions.
The methodology behind these calculations is based on https://github.com/Rlamboll/modify_COVID19_netCDF_Emissions/tree/endof2020, a slight modification of the approach used in https://zenodo.org/record/3947917#.XxR_qyhKhPZ to have a different timeframe.
