Title:
Anthropogenic CO2 emissions assessment of Nile Delta using XCO2 and SIF data from OCO‑2 satellite 
Abstract:
We estimate CO2 emissions from the Nile Delta region of Egypt, using over five years of column-averaged CO2 dry air mole fraction (XCO2) data from the NASA’s OCO-2 satellite. The Nile Delta has significant anthropogenic emissions of CO2 from urban areas and irrigated farming. It is surrounded by the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean Sea, minimizing the confounding influence of CO2 sources in surrounding areas. We compiled the observed spatial and temporal variations of XCO2 in the Nile Delta r...    »
