Short summary
We present an emission inventory with quantified uncertainties of organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) in China. New emission factors from local measurements lead to lower OC emissions than previous studies. We use ground observations to test the levels, trends, and spatial pattern of the emissions. The improvement over prior inventories is indicated by inter-annual comparison and correlation analysis between emissions and observations. Sources with high primary OC/EC are underestimate.
