Abstract: [1] Estimates of fossil fuel CO 2 are a critical component in atmospheric CO 2 inversions. Rather than solving for this portion of the atmospheric CO 2 budget, inversions typically include estimates of fossil fuel CO 2 as a known quantity. However, this assumption may not be appropriate, particularly as inversions continue to solve for fluxes at reduced space and timescales. In this study, two different alterations are made to widely used fossil fuel CO 2 emissions estimates, and these altered emissions are r…
