Short summary
Our work developed a high-resolution emission inventory (EMBEV-Link) with extensive traffic data covering the entire city of Beijing, which mapped the heterogeneity of road emissions associated with traffic dynamics. Nonlocal trucks accounted for substantial emissions (e.g., ~ 30 % of NOx), though they are missing in previous inventories. EMBEV-Link can support fine-grained dispersion modeling (e.g., 1 m × 1 m at hotspots) and mitigate the uncertainty in top-down emission mapping.
