Temporal Climate Impacts

Spreadsheet to facilitate the calculation of time-dependent Absolute Global Warming Potential and Absolute Global Temperature Potential due to a temporally resolved (year by year) emissions inventory (CO2, CH4, N2O). Examples and instructions are included within the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is intended to be a tool for LCA practitioners to quickly assess whether temporal aspects of GHG results are relevant and should be reported upon.
