Recalculations - Sulfur Oxides

Last updated on 24 Jan 2013 17:05 by Kevin Hausmann

The two following charts give an aggregated overview of the absolute changes in SO2 emission estimates 1990 and 2009 against submission 2011.

Changes in 1990 National Totals (-19.55 Gg / -0.37 %) result mostly from recalculations in NFR 1.B.2.b (-20.12 Gg). - Changes reported for 2009 National Totals (-13.67 Gg / -3.05 %) again result mostly from recalculations in NFR 1.B.2.b (-8.34 Gg) and several changes throughout NFR sector 1.A.

The two following tables give an detailed overview of both absolute and relative changes in SO2 emission estimates 1990 and 2009 against submission 2011.
