Abstract. Up-to-date and accurate emission inventories for air pollutants are essential for understanding their role in the formation of tropospheric ozone and particulate matter at various temporal scales, for anticipating pollution peaks and for identifying the key drivers that could help mitigate their emissions. This paper describes the Bayesian variational inverse system PYVAR-CHIMERE, which is adapted to the inversion of reactive species. Complementarily with bottom-up inventories, this system aims at updating and improving the knowledge on the high spatio-temporal variability of emissions of air pollutants and their precursors. The system is designed to use any type of observations, such as satellite observations or surface stations. The potential of PYVAR-CHIMERE is illustrated with one-day inversions of CO and NO2 emissions in Europe, using the MOPITT and OMI satellite observations (for CO and for NO2, respectively).

Short summary
Up-to-date and accurate emission inventories for air pollutants are essential for understanding their role in the formation of tropospheric ozone and particulate matter, for anticipating pollution peaks and for identifying the key drivers that could help mitigate their emissions. Complementarily with bottom-up inventories, the system described here aims at updating and improving the knowledge on the high spatio-temporal variability of emissions of air pollutant and their precursors.
