The Vulcan Project is a multiagency (NASA, DOE, NOAA, NIST) funded effort spawned under the North American Carbon Program (NACP) to quantify North American fossil fuel carbon dioxide (FFCO2) emissions at space and time scales much finer than has been achieved in the past. The purpose is to aid in quantification of the North American carbon budget, to support inverse estimation of carbon sources and sinks, and to support the demands posed by higher resolution FFCO2 observations (in situ and remotely sensed). The detail and scope of the Vulcan FFCO2 inventory has also made it a valuable tool for policymakers, demographers, social scientists and the public at large.
