Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue is a follow-up of the first Issue entitled “Wildland Fire under Changing Climate” (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/atmosphere/special_issues/wildland_fire) published in Atmosphere. It will cover all aspects of climate-change-related fire issues.
Large-scale fires are becoming more frequent due to the rise in temperature and the accompanying decrease in humidity under climate change in recent years. This Special Issue will collect papers on fires around the world from high latitudes to the tropics, including fires in boreal and temperate forests, fires in the Mediterranean climate, tundra and peat fires, agricultural residue fires, fires caused by deforestation and land use changes, and so on. Our main study questions are as follows:
- What are the fuels and causes of future fires?
- What are the latest fire trends, fire seasons, and fire distributions?
- How do fires vary and impact climate and air quality?
- What are the impacts of fires on the projected changes of land cover/land use changes?
- How can remote sensing and geospatial technologies aid in mapping, monitoring, and quantification?
We invite articles from international researchers working on fires, air pollution, and the above questions related to fire–atmospheric interactions.
