BJUT-OBB (Open biomass burning)

Overview >

BJUT-OBB is an emission inventory of crop residue open burning in China, which developed by Beijing University of Technology under the support of Major Research plan of the National Natural Science Foundation of China and National Key Research and Development Program of China. BJUT-OBB was developed through integrating multi-source data including satellite remote sensing, field investigation and mathematical statistics. BJUT-OBB provided the estimates of the emissions from crop residue open burning in 31 provinces/municipalities in mainland of China for the year 2017, including SO2, NOx, CO, NMVOC, NH3, PM10, PM2.5, BC, and OC species of model-ready inputs for CB05 atmospheric chemical mechanism. Monthly emission data and daily emission distribution coefficients are provided at 0.1°×0.1° resolution.
