A global map of emission clumps for future monitoring of fossil fuel CO2 emissions from space

<div>This dataset supplements the following paper submitted to ESSD:<br></div><div><b>A global map of emission clumps for future monitoring of fossil fuel CO<sub>2</sub> emissions from space</b><br></div><div><b><br></b></div>This dataset address the question of the global characterization of area and point fossil fuel CO<sub>2</sub> emitting sources (those hotspots are called emission clumps) that may cause coherent XCO<sub>2</sub> plumes in space-borne XCO<sub>2</sub> images. A total of 11,314 individual clumps, with 5,088 area clumps (whose indices are smaller than 100000) and 6,226 point-source clumps (whose indices are greater than or equal to 100000), are identified, based on ODIAC2017 emission map at 30×30 arc-seconds resolution. The map of emission clumps can be used by global/regional inversion systems and observing system simulation experiments (OSSEs).
