The Multi-scale Emission Inventory Reanalysis and Data Sharing Platform online!

Recently, a multi-scale emission inventory reanalysis and data sharing platform independently developed by the MEIC team of Tsinghua University was launched on the MEIC website. Emission inventories from multiple research groups are shared on the Data Platform, including Tsinghua University, Peking University, Nanjing University, Jinan University, Beijing University of Technology and Shanghai Academy of Environmental Sciences.

MEIC team published China’s emission inventories in 2019 and 2020 to assess the impact of COVID-19 on China’s emissions

The COVID-19 lockdown has reduced China’s anthropogenic emissions substantially between January and March in 2020, with the largest reductions in February. Emissions of SO2, NOx, CO, NMVOCs, and primary PM2.5 were estimated to have decreased by 27%, 36%, 28%, 31%, and 24%, respectively, in February 2020 compared to the same month in 2019.
