Since mid of 20th century, anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions have increased, it is very possible of being driven largely by economic and population growth, and causing the global warming. Based on the global carbon emissions data of 2014 in each country from CDIAC (Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center) and population density data in 2015 from SEDAC (Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center), the population based global carbon emissions dataset in 0.1° resolution (2014) was developed by the model of integrating population density as an economic-population composite indicator to weighted carbon emissions. The result shows the main carbon emission areas are located in the eastern United States, eastern China, Japan, Korea, India, Southeast Asia and Europe, and there are spatial differences in each region. The result can reflect spatial distribution of the current global carbon emissions and provide basic data for global change research. The dataset was archived in .tif data format with the data size of 22.7 MB (3.92MB in compressed file).Browse
