Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Global warming has become one of the most prominent features of modern long-term climate change, and it is generally recognized that the dominant factor is external forcing. The influence of interdecadal or interannual changes, such as internal variability, leads to the complex characteristics of multi-scale interactions in the climate system. With increasing computer technology and understanding of climate change, climate models have been developed and updated for generations. Although models have improved their simulation of multi-scale changes in the climate system, there are still many errors.

The aim of this Special Issue is to go deeply into the study of multi-scale climate simulations. Topics of interest for the Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

1) Multi-scale change characteristics of climate system;

2) Causes and mechanisms of multi-scale climate change;

3) Model performance in multi-scale climate change, including error and its source analyzing, and model improvement;

4) The detection and attribution of multi-scale climate change;

5) Future projections.

Knowledge of the above is of great scientific and societal importance to the understanding of climate change and development of climate models.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
