Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Globally, rapid industrialization and urbanization, along with a growing population, are significantly contributing to the production of aerosols and trace gases that affect human health, climate change, the Earth’s radiation budget, air quality, and atmospheric visibility, which are all serious global environmental concerns. According to the published research, the significant increase in aerosol and trace gases from both anthropogenic and natural sources significantly contributes to world air pollution. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that air pollution levels are dangerously high worldwide as 9 out of 10 people breathe polluted air and 7 million deaths are caused by outdoor and indoor air pollutants each year. Ground-based measurements and satellite remote sensing play a crucial role in the understanding of aerosol and trace gases sources and types, their radiative forcing, aerosol retrievals, the secondary formation of aerosol particles from precursor gases, and the estimation of particulate matter.

This Special Issue welcomes all those manuscripts presenting advances in remote sensing techniques, new methodologies, and applications with new scientific contributions for aerosol and trace gases, their radiative forcing, the estimation of aerosol optical depth and particulate matter, the classification of aerosol types, aerosol–cloud interactions, and related topics.

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.
