Air quality is of great importance to environmental safety and human health. In each year, both indoor and outdoor air pollution are thought to contribute to millions of premature deaths around the world. Statistics show that at the end of 2021, there were a total of 915 thousand people diagnosed with occupational pneumoconiosis in China, and only about 450 thousand patients survived among them. Despite the increased attention being paid to the risks associated with air pollution, there still remain significant challenges and gaps in our understanding of scientific issues such as air quality control, carbon emissions and monitoring, and the assessment of the global carbon cycle via both remote sensing observations and modeling. In addition, with the implementation of carbon-neutral policies and increases in energy and operating costs, it is vital to accurately monitor and control the main greenhouse gases and air pollutants, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and carbon monoxide (CO), etc. Here, to improve our scientific knowledge of air quality control, air pollution simulation and the assessment of the carbon cycle via both observations and modeling, we present this Special Issue entitled “New Insights into Air Quality and Health” in the journal Atmosphere. Any papers related to air quality simulation, air quality control, air pollution simulation, atmospheric dispersion, carbon flux and transport (especially for CO2, CH4, and CO), and the assessment of the carbon cycle via both remote sensing observations and modeling are warmly welcomed for submission to this Special Issue. Papers can focus on observations, computational modeling, spatiotemporal simulations, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) from natural or anthropogenic sources, and can be in the field of safety production, be at the city, regional, or even global scale, and use field or remote sensing observations, model simulations, meta-analyses, or a combination of the above methods. Regions of interest include, but are not limited to, industrial parks, forests, grassland, water, and urban areas.

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.
