Improved tropical cyclone (TC) predictions have come a long way during the past two decades. The advancement of high-performance computing, physical parameterizations, and data assimilation (DA) techniques has contributed significantly to the understanding of physical processes and led to improvements in TC prediction. Recent cyclones Harvey (2017), Irma (2017), Hato (2017), Debbie (2017), Michael (2018), Kong-rey (2018), Goni (2020), Amphan (2020), and Tauktae (2021), among others, have wreaked havoc, causing fatalities and property damage. Accurate forecasts of these extreme events underscore the need for better understanding of physical processes, especially for rapid intensification. The official forecasts rely on numerical weather prediction (NWP) models as well as statistical models (including single or multimodal ensembles). The success of a TC forecast entails prediction of the large-scale as well as storm-scale environment, hence requiring rigorous testing, evaluation, diagnostic studies, and tuning of the forecast models based on field experiments.
In this Special Issue, authors are invited to submit original and review articles to advance the understanding and prediction of TCs, including field experiments, DA, and their impacts on TC prediction, advances in physical parameterizations, advancement of statistical models, and verification and validation of TC products against observations.

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.
