Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The earth's radiation budget balance is determined by atmospheric aerosols, clouds, atmospheric molecules, and surface-reflected radiation.  Aerosols, clouds, and atmospheric gases absorb and scatter incoming sunlight and radiate long-wave infrared radiation. The process is accompanied by a dynamic redistribution of energy between the ocean, land, and atmosphere. Over the past few decades, physical processes have been introduced into climate models to make simulations more accurate. However, due to the complexity and variability of aerosol property inversion, the simulation of atmospheric aerosol effects is still in a highly uncertain state. Aerosols play important roles in climate, meteorology, and public health, hence attracting a lot of public concern.

Remote sensing is very useful for acquiring aerosol information in large scales considering its large coverage and long operation time. From 2000, with the launch of more and more satellite remote sensing sensors, algorithms and new applications are becoming more popular. To reflect the newly developed algorithms and applications of aerosol environmental and remote sensing, we are opening this new Special Issue in Atmosphere, calling for submissions of related original high-quality publications. We invite our colleagues to submit their work to this Special Issue.

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.
