Short summary
We estimated BC emissions from diesel sources in Murmansk Region and Murmansk City, the largest city in the Arctic. We developed a detailed inventory including on-road vehicles, off-road transport (mining, locomotives, construction and agriculture), fishing and diesel generators. We conducted several surveys to understand the vehicle fleet and driving patterns. BC emissions in Murmansk Region were 0.40 Gg in 2012. Total BC emissions from diesel sources in Russia estimated at 50.8 Gg in 2010.
