Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Atmospheric aerosols are subject to various processes that affect their concentration, distribution, chemical and physical properties and, as a consequence, their impact on climate, ecosystems and human health. Source emissions and transport phenomena involve physical and chemical processes that directly affect the life cycle of aerosols in the atmosphere. Consequently, the characterization of the atmospheric aerosol provides relevant information on the potential negative impact that it could cause to human beings. This Special Issue aims to present the most recent and outstanding results on the characterization, source emissions, transport and, consequently, the spatial distribution that atmospheric aerosols undergo during their life cycle, as well as their impact on the environment and human health.

Topics of interest for this issue include, but are not limited to:

  • The study of aerosol formation, transport and deposition processes.
  • The physical and chemical characterization of aerosols and their relationship with transformation processes.
  • The impact of atmospheric aerosols on health, climate and ecosystems.
  • The study of aerosol transformation processes, both indoor and outdoor.
  • Applications.
  • Any other topic that is considered relevant and is framed within the objectives of this Special Issue.

Original research results related to the characterization and health impact of aerosols are welcome contributions.

Dr. Fernanda Oduber
Guest Editor

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.
