We present an observationally constrained United States black carbon emission inventory with explicit representation of activity and technology between 1960 and 2000. We compare measured coefficient

Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment

Black carbon aerosol plays a unique and important role in Earth's climate system. Black carbon is a type of carbonaceous material with a unique combination of physical properties. This assessment

The atmospheric lifetime of black carbon

Primary Emissions of Submicron and Carbonaceous Particles in Europe and the Potential for their Control

The interest in submicron and specifically carbonaceous particles in the atmosphere has risen recently, largely because of their potential role as climate forcing agents. Black carbon (BC) particles

Historical emissions of carbonaceous aerosols from biomass and fossil fuel burning for the period 1870–2000

Historical changes of black carbon (BC) and particulate organic matter (POM) emissions from biomass burning (BB) and fossil fuel (FF) burning are estimated from 1870 to 2000. A bottom‐up inventory

Elemental and molecular evidence of soot- and char-derived black carbon inputs to New York City's atmosphere during the 20th century.

The temporal trends of soot-BC observed in lake cores do not agree with published historical reconstructions based on fuel consumption and estimated emission factors, but decreases in GBC levels observed in more recently deposited sediments are consistent with improvements in particle emissions control systems.

Quantification of black carbon in urban soils

Black carbon (BC), which comprises partially combusted organic material such as char and soot, is a hazardous pollutant and contributor to global warming, but is also highly stable, and once

Top-down analysis of the elemental carbon emissions inventory in the United States by inverse modeling using Community Multiscale Air Quality model with decoupled direct method (CMAQ-DDM)

[1] A Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model based inverse method is used for calibrating the 2004 elemental carbon (EC) emissions in the continental United States. We convert the Thermal



Analysis of black carbon and carbon monoxide observed over the Indian Ocean: Implications for emissions and photochemistry

[1] Air from South Asia carries heavy loadings of organic and light-absorbing aerosol but low concentrations of ozone. We investigate ambient pollutant concentrations measured during the Indian Ocean

Black carbon emissions in China

Large historical changes of fossil‐fuel black carbon aerosols

Anthropogenic emissions of fine black carbon (BC) particles, the principal light‐absorbing atmospheric aerosol, have varied during the past century in response to changes of fossil‐fuel utilization,

Construction of a 1° × 1° fossil fuel emission data set for carbonaceous aerosol and implementation and radiative impact in the ECHAM4 model

Global-scale emissions of carbonaceous aerosol from fossil fuel usage have been calculated with a resolution of 1° × 1°. Emission factors for black and organic carbon have been gathered from the

Global atmospheric black carbon inferred from AERONET

It is found that the amount of BC in current climatologies must be increased by a factor of 2–4 to yield best agreement with AERONET, in the approximation in which BC is externally mixed with other aerosols.

Aerosol black carbon measurements in the Arctic haze during AGASP-II

During the second Arctic Gas and Aerosol Sampling Program conducted in April 1986, we performed measurements of the optically absorbing carbonaceous component of the ambient aerosol from the NOAA
