>0 - 3

>3 - 10

>10 - 32

>32 - 100

>100 - 1,995

>1,995 - 6,500,000

"The Carbon Map was created by AEA Energy & Environment, which compiles annual emission estimates from a large number of sources and fuels as part of the National Atmospheric Emission Inventory (NAEI) programme of work for Defra. These estimates are available down to the square kilometre level, which is the detail shown in the national and regional CO2 emission maps."

Hi! I found that interesting! Can you cite some methods by which they actually map atmospheric carbon and other emissions?

Thanks in advance,
