Biogenic emissions in Europe 1. Estimates and uncertainties

Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Public License

Several biogenic volatile organic compound (VOC) emission algorithms have been used, together with meteorological data from the EMEP MSC-W ozone model, to generate estimates of the emissions of isoprene from European forests and agricultural crops over several summer periods. The most up-to-date estimate combines the recently updated isoprene emission factors from the United States with available knowledge of European tree species and emission factors. In some cases these European emission factors are significantly different from their US equivalents because of differences in the tree species represented within a forest classification. -from Authors
