Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Arctic have undergone climate change at a more rapid pace than the rest of the globe. Simultaneously, Arctic climate change affects weather and climate variability all over the world. Therefore, the Arctic is a particular region of concern when addressing the issue of climate change. As such, we are organizing a Special Issue that aims to address the latest research results obtained in the observation and modeling of the Arctic at various time scales. We welcome the contribution of articles that attend to the observation and modeling of the Arctic from the following perspectives: the atmosphere  (surface temperature, snow amount/extent), glacial change, sea ice, Arctic amplification, the application of remote sensing, observations, and simulation results from CMIP models.

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.
