Mobile Sector Data - Version 4 of the 2002 NEI - The following zipped Access files were created in September 2008. Annual emissions are in tons per year with zero emission values removed. Nonroad files include aircraft, locomotive, and commerical marine vessels. No code description are added to these files to limit the file size. SCC and pollutant descriptions are provided at EIS Code Tables. Point of contact for the Mobile Section is Laurel Driver or (919) 541-2859.

2002 Nonroad Supplement GIS Data - For nonroad source categories, activity or fuel use data are not readily available for all counties in the U.S. Therefore, emissions often are calculated at the national level and allocated to individual counties based on appropriated surrogates. Often the surrogate data are available as Geographic Information System (GIS) data sets. Three sets of files are provided here which contain the GIS data used to spatially allocate emissions for aircraft, commerical marine vessels (CMV), and locomotives. All of the 2002 data used in this inventory effort were obtained from the Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) or the FAA's Emissions Dispersion and Modeling System (EDMS)

Biogenic Sector Data
Biogenic Sector Data and Readme for biogenic data - The biogenic emissions data has not been updated since it was originally posted in March 2004. It has been moved to the Final 2002 NEI FTP site for your convenience.

Posted Updates to Data

If you would like to submit comments or recommendations, please send an email to the Info Chief Help Desk at info.chief@epa.gov. The subject should be "2002 final NEI comment." As time and resources permit the 2002 inventory will be updated and corrected. This information is also posted in the folder General_Inventory_Information on the FTP site.
