African Anthropogenic Emissions Inventory for gases and particles from 1990 to 2015 S. Keita, C. Liousse, E.-M. Assamoi, T. Doumbia, E. T. N'Datchoh, S. Gnamien, N. Elguindi, C. Granier, and V. Yoboué

Short summary
This inventory fills the gap in African regional inventories, providing biofuel and fossil fuel emissions that take into account African specificities. It could be used for air quality modeling. We show that all pollutant emissions are globally increasing during the period 1990–2015. Also, West Africa and East Africa emissions are largely due to domestic fire and traffic activities, while southern Africa and northern Africa emissions are largely due to industrial and power plant sources.
