Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the improvement in global air pollution, the regional diffusion characteristics of air pollution within the boundary layer have attracted increasingly more attention. The interaction mechanism between the vertical evolution of air pollution within the boundary layer and its regional transport still requires studying, being of great significance for the improvement of the air quality model and air pollution control measures. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide recent advances in the field of the vertical distribution of air pollution and its correlations with regional transport, including the vertical evolution of air pollutants and their regional diffusion characteristics based on the combination of observation and modelling studies, and the vertical distribution of particulate matter chemical species and gas species at urban sites and background stations that, based on various observation methods, e.g., aerial survey, radar, satellite, meteorological tower, tethered airship, sounding balloon, and cable car, etc. The topic is also highly relevant to innovative observation methods and model research methods for the vertical evolution of air pollutants and their regional diffusion characteristics.

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.
