Systematic air quality measurements were made in the study region of Toronto during the 2015 Pan-Am games (July 14th – July 29th). These measurements were done using the mobile lab CRUISER (Canadian Regional and Urban Investigation System for Environmental Research) to identify emission sources for characterization and emission inventory development. The measurements included several trace gases (NOx, SO2, CO, VOCs, CO2, CH4, and black carbon), air toxics (H2S, aromatics), atmospheric particles, particle composition and meteorological parameters. Additionally, the measurements were systematically designed to cover 18 sub-regions in and around the Greater Toronto Area multiple times so as to cover the different exposure settings such as traffic, industry, residential, commercial, etc.

Hourly values of AQHI (Air Quality Health Index) constituents (O3, NO2, PM2.5), other selected trace gases (SO2, H2S), and PM1 and PM10 mass concentrations collected at the Sable Island Upper Air Station, Sable Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. Data is available from January 2017, and is updated at least annually. Supplemental Information

Lower Detection Limits (LDL) 0.4 ppbv for NOx, SO2, H2S, 1 ppbv for O3, 0.1 ugm-3 for PM (particulate matter). Error estimates:

+/- 10% and +/- 0.2 ppbv for NOx, SO2, H2S (except +/-20% NOx January 2017);

+/- 10% and +/- 1.0 ppbv for O3;

+/- 3% for PM2.5 (from manufacturer).

The Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2 (OCO-2) is a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) satellite launched in 2014. Although OCO-2 was not designed for monitoring power plant emissions, in some cases, carbon dioxide (CO2) observations from OCO-2 can be used to quantify daily CO2 emissions from individual coal power plants by fitting the data to plume model simulations. This data catalogue entry consists of the CO2 measurements by OCO-2 for the 7 power plant overpasses or flybys that were used for quantifying CO2 emissions in Nassar et al. (2017).

The Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) collects information on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions annually from facilities across Canada. It is a mandatory program for those who meet the requirements. Facilities that emit 10 kilotonnes or more of GHGs, in carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent (eq.) units, per year must report their emissions to Environment and Climate Change Canada.

The Agri-Environmental Indicator Soil Organic Matter data series provides a measure of soil health and an estimate of how much carbon dioxide (CO2) has been removed from the atmosphere by plants and sequestered as soil organic carbon (SOC) in agricultural soils.

In November 2005, participants at the Workshop on Geological Storage of CO2 at Princeton University agreed on the need for a common test problem to assess various models to simulate the fate of CO2 injected into the subsurface. Alberta Geological Survey offered to make available the data for the Wabamun Lake area in Alberta, Canada, which were assembled to develop a comprehensive model for studying CO2 geological storage. The Wabamun Lake area, southwest of Edmonton in central Alberta, was selected as the test area because a variety of favourable conditions identified it as a potential site for future, large-scale CO2 injection. Several large, industrial CO2 point sources are in the area, resulting in short transportation distances of the captured gas.
