Global sulfur emissions in the 1990s
This paper provides global and country by country estimates of sulfur emissions for the early and mid-1990s. Raw estimates are obtained in two ways. For countries with published data we compile that data from the available sources. For the remaining countries, we use either the decomposition model estimated by Stern (1999), the first differences environmental Kuznets curve model estimated by Stern and Common (2001), or simple extrapolation depending on the availability of data on the explanatory variables. We then examine the compatibility of these estimates with the ASL estimates for 1990. Based on these and other comparisons we construct a preferred database for 1850-1999 and discuss the main movements in the 1990s. The data is available from the datasite.
