Analyzing nitrogen oxides to carbon dioxide emission ratios from space: A case study of Matimba Power Station in South Africa

Hi guys,

I just wanted to say that we have a new paper on Atmospheric Environment: X

The paper Analyzing nitrogen oxides to carbon dioxide emission ratios from space: A case study of Matimba Power Station in South Africa was written by myself, Iolanda Ialongo, Monika Szeląg, Christian Retscher, Tomohiro Oda, and David Crisp.

Highlights:
  • A new methodology to derive source-specific NOx-to-CO2 emission ratios.
  • The method is applied for TROPOMI and OCO-2 satellite observations.
  • The mean emission ratio of (2.6±0.6)×10−3 is obtained for Matimba Power Station.
  • The annual CO2 emissions for Matimba are ∼60 kt/d.
  • The emission estimates are consistent with existing inventories such as ODIAC.

The Journal Pre-proof version is already available online: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.aeaoa.2021.100110
I will write more about this paper later.

Stay tuned!

Janne
