The COFFEE dataset contains global maps of CO2 emissions and O2 uptake related to fossil fuel combustions. Currently, data is available with hourly resolution on a 1x1 grid (update to 0.1 x 0.1 grid ongoing). The information in the dataset is based on fossil fuel CO2 emission from the Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) and fuel consumption data from the United Nations Energy statististics and British Petroleum BP)

Data can be downloaded via ftp from A detailed description of the creation of the dataset and some first application can be found in the following paper: Steinbach, J., Gerbig, C., R�denbeck, C., Karstens, U., Minejima, C., and Mukai, H.: The CO2 release and Oxygen uptake from Fossil Fuel Emission Estimate (COFFEE) dataset: Effects from varying oxidative ratios, Atmos. Chem. Phys. Discuss., 11, 6187-6220, doi:10.5194/acpd-11-6187-2011, 2011.

More information, also on the new high-resolved version of COFFEE, will follow soon on this page.
