Modelling and validation of near-surface CO2 mixing ratio in Saint-Petersburg urban area, Russia

Since megacities largely determine the amount of anthropogenic CO2 emitted into the atmosphere (up to 70%), which is the most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas, it is crucial to estimate emissions of this gas from a particular city and even on a city-scale. An inverse modelling of CO2 emissions is a promising approach of the emission … Continue reading Modelling and validation of near-surface CO2 mixing ratio in Saint-Petersburg urban area, Russia
