Since the launch of the world's first meteorological satellite, Television Infrared Observation Satellite (TIROS), on April 1, 1960, meteorological satellites have experienced incredible improvements over the past 60 years. To date, hundreds of meteorological satellite instruments have been successfully launched into either Low Earth Orbit (LEO) or Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO) to provide research or operational observations of the Earth’s atmospheric and surface properties. Sensor data records (SDR) from many satellite observations have been widely applied to various Environmental Data Record (EDR) product systems for retrievals of the Earth’s atmospheric and related surface parameters, the Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) satellite data assimilation systems for weather and climate forecast, and for weather and climate studies, significantly improving NWP weather forecast skills and our understanding of the Earth’s atmosphere–surface system. Simultaneously, many advanced technologies have been developed for satellite observations. They have played and will continue to play a critical role in the success of satellite observation driven meteorology, weather forecasts, climate studies, and atmosphere–surface interaction studies.
Manuscripts solicited for this Special Issue are in research areas including, but not limited to, the following topics: 1) satellite instrumentation technologies (e.g., precipitation radars, microwave radiometers, infrared sounders, UV/VIS sounders, optical spectrometers, lighting sensors, or a hybrid of multi-sensor packages); 2) fundamental calibration technologies in relation to a specific sensor within the meteorological satellites; 3) satellite data inter-sensor calibration technogologies; 4) satellite instrument and observation data monitoring systems in near-real time mode; 5) satellite observation data record analysis for weather, environmental, or climate studies; 6) developments in radiative transfer modeling for satellite observations; 7) advanced retrieval algorithm development of atmospheric composition, meteorological parameters, or surface (land/ocean) properties from single or hybrid sensors of single or multiple satellites; 8) satellite data assimilation development in NWP. We also encourage review articles on new meteorological satellite missions in the LEO and/or GEO systems from the past through the future satellite observation technologies and on long-term satellite instrument and data (SDR and EDR) monitoring systems from multiple meteorological satellite platforms and instruments.
The scientific results and conclusions, as well as any views or opinions expressed herein, are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of NOAA or the Department of Commerce.

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).
