Short Name:

Vulcan: High-Resolution Hourly Fossil Fuel CO2 Emissions in USA, 2010-2015, Version 3

The Vulcan version 3.0 hourly dataset quantifies hourly emissions at a 1-km resolution for the 2010-2015 time period. Estimates are provided of hourly carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels (FF) and CO2 emissions from cement production for the conterminous United States and the state of Alaska. Referred to as FFCO2, the emissions from Vulcan are categorized into 10 source sectors including; residential, commercial, industrial, electricity production, onroad, nonroad, commercial marine vessel, airport, rail, and cement. Files for hourly total emissions are also available. Data are represented in space on a 1 km x 1 km grid as hourly totals for 2010-2015. This dataset provides the first bottom-up U.S.-wide FFCO2 emissions data product at 1 km2/hourly for multiple years and is designed to be used as emission estimates in atmospheric transport modeling, policy, mapping, and other data analyses and applications.
