Addressing Science and Policy Needs with Community Emissions Efforts

Abstract : We present community-driven emissions efforts within the Global Emissions InitiAtive (GEIA, http://www.geiacenter.org/), a joint IGAC/iLEAPS/AIMES initiative of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme. Since 1990, GEIA has served as a forum for the exchange of expertise and information on emissions. GEIA's mission is to (1) quantify anthropogenic emissions and natural exchanges of trace gases and aerosols; and (2) facilitate the use of this information by the research, assessment, and policy communities. GEIA supports a worldwide network of over 1200 developers and users in international scientific projects, providing a solid scientific foundation for atmospheric chemistry research. Moving forward, GEIA is broadening its role to serve the scientific, regulatory, and operational emission communities. GEIA intends to demonstrate the potential for improving emission information by promoting the interoperability of datasets and tools and by making use of near-real-time observations. As a first step toward these goals, two new programs are being linked with GEIA: * ECCAD (Emissions of Chemical Compounds & Compilation of Ancillary Data, http://eccad.sedoo.fr/) is GEIA's new interactive emissions data portal, providing consistent access to emission inventories and ancillary data with easy-to-use tools for analysis and visualization. * CIERA (Community Initiative for Emissions Research & Applications, http://ciera-air.org/) is a new GEIA community project to develop interoperability in emissions datasets and tools, support evaluations of inventories, communicate emissions information in innovative ways, and connect the emissions development and user communities. We invite the scientific and policy community to join the GEIA network and build partnerships to improve emissions information.
