Transport sector and Environmental Impact: Spatial Analysis of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Poland

Abstract :

Spatial inventory of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions includes many categories of human Activity .The Aim of this research is to analyse the high resolution spatial distributions of emissions in the transport sector. The statistical data at the lowest level (Provinces, districts ,and municipalities )are used to make GHG spatial for Poland as a case study .The vector maps of GHG emission sources in the Transport sector ,and the algorithms for disaggregation of activity data to the level of road segments have been created .According to mathematical models ,the emissions of carbon dioxide, methane,nitrous oxide ,and other greenhouse gases ,as well as the total emissions in CO2 -equivalentat the level of road segments ?have been calculated for passenger cars ,buses ,lorries, and special cars .
