Short summary
The Beijing area has suffered from severe air quality pollution in recent years, including ozone pollution in summer. BVOC emissions play a non-negligible role in air quality and climate. Since the forest cover rate increased from 20.6 % to 35.8 % during 1998–2013 in Beijing, we presented a new estimation of local BVOC emissions in a current scenario based on the latest emission model MEGAN v2.1 and also adopted diverse input datasets for the sensitivities of the model and results.
