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

In comparison to the estimates reported in submission 2011, changes in National Totals result solely from recalculations in NFR 1. Here, for 1990 (+0.26 kg / +0.02 %), these changes result from newly reported emissions from NFRs 1.A.3.d ii (+0.24 kg) and 1.A.4.c iii (+0.02 kg). For 2009 (-14.88 kg / -6.72 %), further broad recalculations occur througout NFR 1 (-14.88 kg / -9.32 %) based mostly on a revised Energy Balance 2009.

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