Short summary
This paper presents a bottom-up methodology based on the local emission factors, complemented with the widely used emission factors of COPERT model and near-real-time (NRT) traffic data on road segments to develop a high temporal/spatial resolution vehicle emission inventory (HTSVE) for the urban Beijing area. The results show that the vehicle emissions of NOx, CO, HC and PM were 10.54 × 104, 42.51 × 104 and 2.13 × 104 and 0.41 × 104 Mg respectively.
