In the context of global warming, extreme events are the focus of many academics’ attention. The Tibetan Plateau is the third pole in the world and the atmospheric water tower. The convective systems over the Tibetan Plateau are closely related to extreme weather and extreme climate events in East Asia, which should be deeply studied. For example, parts of extreme precipitation in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River are related to the eastward-moving convective systems over the Tibetan Plateau. The intensity and frequency of extreme precipitation events as well as their macro- and microphysical properties in East Asia are hence worth investigation and very significant for predicting the occurrence of natural disasters in the future. Moreover, moisture may not only play a very important role in generating clouds and precipitation over the Tibetan Plateau but is meaningful for eastward-moving convective systems. This Special Issue of Atmosphere focuses on the weather and climate of the Tibetan Plateau and its impact. Particularly welcome are studies that focus on convective and climate analysis over the Tibetan Plateau, further examining the role of the Tibetan Plateau. We also invite manuscripts to address how the Tibetan Plateau affects downstream meteorological extremes no matter the history or the future. Studies on the role of moisture around the Tibetan Plateau are also welcome.

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.
