Emissions in India – Water Transport

The freight and passenger transport on water is a growing source of emissions, worldwide. This includes ocean going ship and in-land transport. In our WRF-CAMx regional chemical transport model, covering the Indian Subcontinent, we adopted the inventory compiled by the EDGAR Team’s HTAP_V2 inventory based on MICS-Asia, EPA-US/Canada and TNO.
