Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Numerous Earth surface processes, such as the circulations of hydrology, energy, carbon and atmosphere, are remarkably changed under the background of climate change. Great efforts are made to promote the understanding of the past, present and future surface environment. On one hand, new hybrid algorithms are designed to achieve superior accuracy, as well as mechanism interpretability within Earth surface data simulation. On the other hand, comprehensive investigations are carried out to illustrate the spatial and temporal evolution pattern of surface components on the basis of objective evaluations. Increasingly available Earth observation datasets, including in situ measurements, remotely sensed data and assimilation product, provide unprecedented opportunities for coping with climate change and achieving sustainable development.
This Special Issue aims to seek insights related to Earth surface process from an innovative perspective. Any advances or applications of the use of Earth observation datasets to address environmental issues are encouraged. Topics may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Advanced algorithms in Earth surface data simulation;
- Multi-perspective evaluations of Earth surface variables;
- Spatial and temporal evolution pattern of key surface components under the background of climate change;
- Numerous inter-reactions elements within Earth surface circulation systems.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
