EISSA Courses

The EISSA course consists of one module and includes the use of VITO's emissions modelling tools to compile bottom-up and top-down spatially distributed emission data. The module can be ordered separately on our environmental training website.

This course module is split into 4 parts:

  1. Introduction: emissions as input to air quality modelling.
  2. Basic concepts in emission modelling: bottom-up and top-down emission modelling techniques and integrated approaches. 
  3. Overview of EISSA: an example of a bottom-up emission estimation tool, generating highly spatially resolved emissions for a specific region. 
  4. Overview of E-MAP: an example of a top-down emission mapping tool, generating emission input for different chemical transport models.
