Short summary
In Brazil, goods are essentially transported by a growing vehicular fleet. However, the atmospheric emissions of this prime source of air pollution are still unknown in most places. In this paper, we present the BRAzilian Vehicular Emissions inventory Software (BRAVES) database, containing detailed information on vehicular emissions of multiple types of air pollutants and covering the entire Brazilian territory. These data are crucial to understanding the air pollution in Brazil.
