Observation-based estimates of fossil fuel-derived CO{sub 2} emissions in the Netherlands using DELTA14C, CO and 222Radon

Abstract

Surface emissions of CO{sub 2} from fossil fuel combustion (PHIFFCO{sub 2}) are estimated for the Netherlands for the period of May 2006-June 2009 using ambient atmospheric observations taken at station Lutjewad in the Netherlands (6 deg 21' E, 53 deg 24' N, 1 m. a.s.I.). Measurements of DELTA14C on 2-weekly integrations of CO{sub 2} and CO mixing ratios are combined to construct a quasi-continuous proxy record (FFCO{sub 2}) from which surface fluxes (PHIFFCO{sub 2}) are determined using the 222Rn flux method. The trajectories of the air masses are analysed to determine emissions, which are representative for the Netherlands. We compared our observationally based estimates to the national inventories and we evaluated our methodology using the regional atmospheric transport model REMO. Based on 3 yr of observations we find annual mean PHIFFCO{sub 2} emissions of (4.7 +- 1.6) kt km-2 a-1 which is in very good agreement with the Dutch inventories of (4.5 +- 0.2) kt km-2 a-1 (average of 2006-2008)
