Atmospheric emissions summary 2006

Experimental statistics of summary emissions of greenhouse gases, acid rain precursors and emissions affecting air quality by 12 sectors, 2006 estimates. Includes an estimate of the proportion of emissions associated with road transport. This table is an attempt to replicate similar UK statistics.

The figures provided differ from published estimates of Scottish emissions in that they include an estimate of emissions due to the purchase of fuel by Scottish residents in other countries and exclude emissions caused by the purchase of fuel in Scotland by foreign residents. These and other differences are shown in the bridging table and explained in the following paper which also describes the methods used by AEA in the creation of these estimates: Scotland Air Accounts.

Atompheric emissions bridging table 1990, 1995, 1998-2006

Experimental statistics providing atmospheric emissions bridging table for 1990, 1995, 1998-2006. This table shows the relationship betwen the emissions of greenhouse gases and some other air pollutants reported in tables above and the greenhouse gas and air polutant inventories published on the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory website. This table is an attempt to replicate the UK table UK statistics.
