The high-resolution grid (1km×1km) dataset of mercury emissions in China during 1998-2014 was constructed using a bottom-up approach. This dataset is produced based on data of land uses, individual enterprises, roadmaps, and population, uncovering Hg emissions in agriculture, industries, services, and residents.
This dataset can promote the reliability of Hg-related studies at a high spatial resolution. Moreover, this dataset can support spatially explicit Hg reduction of economic sectors.
