Anthropogenic Carbon Emission System, 2012-2017, Version 2

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

This dataset provides estimates of hourly carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels at 1-km resolution for the coterminous United States (CONUS) covering the years 2012 through 2017. Emissions from the ACES model are reported for ten distinct emissions source sectors: Airports and Aircraft, Commercial Buildings, Electric Power Generation facilities, Industrial point and non-point sources, Commercial Marine Vessels, Nonroad vehicles and equipment, Oil and Gas wells and facilities, Onroad vehicles, Railway engines and yards, and Residential buildings. All emissions are reported hourly on a 1-km x 1-km spatial grid. The data are provided in NetCDF version 4 format.

Total emissions for CONUS in the year 2017. Insets show the high-resolution detail of 1 km2 estimates at urban and regional scales. In most metropolitan areas the spatial pattern of emissions is strongly influenced by the onroad emissions sector (from Gately and Hutyra, 2022).
