The geography of urban greenhouse gas emissions in Asia: A

Asian urban GHG emissions account for between 30 and 38% of total emissions. Urban population size, density and income positively correlate with GHGs emissions. Urban income however, is non-linearly (squared and cubic) related to urban GHG emissions. Growth rate is inversely related to urban GHG emissions. While findings confirm other studies, given data uncertainties, more analysis is necessary.

An inventory of gaseous and primary aerosol emissions in Asia

Emissions are estimated for all major anthropogenic sources, including biomass burning, in 64 regions of Asia. We estimate total Asian emissions as follows: 34.3 Tg SO 2, 26.8 Tg NO x, 9870 Tg CO 2, 279 Tg CO, 107 Tg CH 4, 52.2 Tg NMVOC, 2.54 Tg black carbon (BC), 10.4 Tg organic carbon (OC), and 27.5 Tg NH 3. In addition, NMVOC are speciated into 19 subcategories according to functional groups and reactivity.
