Special Issue Information
Variations in the Earth’s climate, on all time scales from months to millennia, may be due to natural periodic and chaotic processes or external thermal events, such as modulations of the solar cycles, geothermal volcanic activity, and/or persistent anthropogenic changes in the composition of the atmosphere or in land use. The anthropogenic theory of 20th-century climate change is based upon the hypothesis that a “global average temperature” increase correlates with the atmospheric concentrations of transducer gases such as CO2 or methane (commonly known as “greenhouse gases”) that convert sunlight into enthalpy and entropy. The flimsy historical scientific evidence is fraught with uncertainty and a dearth of conclusive experimental results. Research requires a truly multidisciplinary approach: complex system physics, thermometry, spectroscopy and physical chemistry, classical, statistical, irreversible and non-steady-state thermodynamics, radiation physics, biochemical physics, etc. In this Special Issue, we propose to bring together new peer-reviewed scientifically sound research articles. We will procure articles on theory, experimental, and/or simulation (computer experiments) research in any of the above disciplines that will enable a better scientific description of fluctuations in climates on all time scales. Original research papers containing new science from any discipline that can shed light on the anthropogenic climate change hypothesis, one way or another, are 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. Entropy 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 2000 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.
