Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over recent decades, Arctic warming and Arctic sea ice loss have become one of the most dramatic features of the changing global climate system and ecosystem. Whether the Arctic atmosphere–sea ice interaction affects the atmospheric circulation, climate change, extreme weather, and pollution in the Northern Hemisphere is still controversial and widely debated. Statistical analyses and sensitivity experiments pointed out that Arctic sea ice loss can affect the mid-high latitude weather and climate through complex interactions and feedback processes. However, opposing views using extensive numerical simulations considered that the atmospheric responses to sea ice loss are insignificant or weak and that the statistical Arctic–midlatitudes association is likely attributed to the internal atmospheric variability. Some investigations also discussed the contribution of midlatitudes or tropical anomalies in the Arctic.

We are pleased to announce that a Special Issue on “Arctic Atmosphere–Sea Ice Interaction and Impacts” will be hosted by the open access journal Atmosphere and published in the fall of 2023. The aim is to enhance our scientific understanding of the linkage and physical mechanisms between the Arctic and Northern Hemispheric climate change from low to high latitudes.

Statistical research, case studies, reanalysis and model evaluation, model simulations, and systematic reviews related to the theme of Arctic Atmosphere–Sea Ice Interaction and Impacts are welcome. Example topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Linkage between Arctic (sea ice, warming, etc.) and Northern Hemispheric atmospheric circulations (teleconnections, blocking high, stratospheric polar vortex, sudden stratospheric warming, etc.).
  • Impacts of Arctic sea ice on climate change, extreme weather, and pollution over Eurasia and North America.
  • Intermittency of the Arctic–midlatitudes association.
  • Nonlinear response of atmospheric circulation to Arctic changes.
  • Bidirectional Arctic–tropical connection.
  • Model studies for the physical mechanisms in linking the Arctic to low latitudes.
  • Evaluation of model or reanalysis datasets for the Arctic atmosphere–sea ice interaction and Arctic–midlatitudes association.

We very much look forward to your submissions.

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.
