Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental odor is perceived as a major nuisance by both the rural and urban population. The sources of odorous substances are manifold. In urban areas, these include restaurants, small manufacturing trades, and other sources, which might cause complaints.

In the suburbs, wastewater treatment plants, landfill sites, and other infrastructures are the expected sources of major odor. These problems are often caused be the accelerated growth of cities. In rural sites, livestock farming and the spreading of manure on the fields is blamed for severe odor annoyance. In fact, environmental odors are considered to be a common cause of public complaints to local authorities, regional, or national environmental agencies. With a first edition successfully published in 2021, this second edition of the Special Issue series of Atmosphere will continue to address the entire chain, from the quantification of odor sources, abatement methods, dilution in the atmosphere, and the assessment of odor exposure for the an evaluation of annoyance. In particular, this series aims to encourage contributions that deal with field trials and dispersion modeling to assess the degree of annoyance and the quantitative success of abatement measures.
