The two following charts give an aggregated overview of the absolute changes in emission estimates 1990 and 2009 against submission 2011.

Changes in National Totals for both 1990 (+2.87 Mg /+11 %) and 2009 (+3.33 Mg / +60 %) result mostly from recalculations within NFR 1.A.1.a (+2.91 and +4.22 Mg), 1.A.2.f i (+1.72 and +0.15 Mg), and 1.A.4.c iii (-2.24 and -1.02 Mg). - Largest over-all relative changes occur within NFR 1.A.4.c iii (-99.9 %) where a revised tier1 default EF from the 2009 EMEP Guidebook was introduced.

The two following tables give an detailed overview of both absolute and relative changes in emission estimates 1990 and 2009 against submission 2011.
