Abstract: This report aims to introduce a Top Down emission inventory covering the EU28 domain developed with the goal of supporting integrated assessment modelling strategies (IAM) in the fields of regional air-quality, land use and territorial modelling. The high resolution JRC inventory is based on country total emission data derived from the Greenhouse Gas and Air Pollution Interactions and Synergies Model (GAINS) set for reaching the targets under the assumptions of the 2013 Air Quality package review. The JRC inventory provides emissions for a wide array of sectors from year 2010 up to 2030 and covers NOx, SO2, VOC, PM10, PM2.5 and NH3. It is developed at 100m spatial resolution and is currently distributed at 1/8o x 1/8o degrees resolution. In order to spatially distribute emissions, specific spatial layers, models output or statistical dataset which better reproduce the expected spatial patterns of emissions are selected for each sector. The choices made in terms of calibration of these spatial proxies are also introduced and discussed.
