The new EMEP grid

"Old" and "new" EMEP domain

At the 36th session of the EMEP Steering Body the EMEP Centres suggested to increase spatial resolution of reported emissions from 50x 50 km EMEP grid to 0.1° × 0.1° long-lat in a geographic coordinate system (WGS84). The new domain will cover the geographic area between 30°N-82°N latitude and 30°W-90°E longitude. This suggestion represents a balance between political needs, scientific needs and technical feasibility as of 2012 and for the next years.

The EMEP reporting guidelines, including the reporting templates and GNFR will be revised to reflect upcoming changes. A draft version of the updated guidelines was presented at the TFEIP meeting in Istanbul (May 2013). After the adoption by the EB the new templates will be posted on the CEIP website. The start of reporting in revised templates is preliminary planned for 2015.

There will be no temporary reporting templates for the new EMEP grid in between. If countries plan to prepare gridded data in the new resolution before, it should be reported in current templates by replacing 50km² EMEP grid coordinates "i" and "j" with the long-lat coordinates. To get more information about the new grid  download the document on the right side. prepared by the EMEP centres. 

Parties are invited to download data defining the new grid cells and fractions of grid cells (as text and Excel file) from the table below. Country specific ESRI shape files with the new 0.1°x0.1° (long-lat) grid definition can be downloaded as well.
