An inventory of engine and boiler exhaust emissions from ocean going vessels (OGV), tugs and dredges for the Port of Brisbane is described. A detailed methodology is employed whereby the movements and consequent emissions of each individual vessel are estimated. It was estimated that about 47% of total OGV fuel consumption occurred at berth and about 43% during the relatively long transit of port waters. Nearly 60% and 56% respectively of the NOx and particles emitted by OGVs were during transit
