Air pollution and greenhouse gases cause serious damage to the ecosystem and human health, and further research is needed on their health effects and potential risks, such as related research on measured exposure to different pollutants in various microenvironments. You can also use existing models or develop new algorithms to estimate and predict pollutant levels, which are all acceptable directions.
With the continuous advancement of industrialization and urbanization, cities and urban agglomerations, as the main population centers, are facing the pressure of air pollution prevention caused by the emission of SO2, NOX, particulate matter, and other pollutants. At the same time, the increasing emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases have caused climate change to become an urgent problem. Both cause serious damage to the ecosystem and human health. In order to alleviate these health damages, researchers have made extensive efforts to reduce the health risks of pollutants and reduce pollutants. However, different groups of people have different exposure times in various environments—for example, in the road environment and in car exhaust, particulate matter, CO, and NOx are produced, and public servants such as transportation personnel and traffic police are more exposed. Therefore, it is necessary to further study the health effects and potential risks of air pollution exposure on the human body under specific scenarios.
In order to meet the research needs, this Special Issue invites research on the health damage of air pollutants and greenhouse gases to humans. This can include a number of studies, such as related research on measuring the exposure of different pollutants in various microenvironments, and indoor and outdoor air quality. You can also have models or develop new algorithms to estimate and predict the level of small-scale or large-scale pollutants. In addition, while improving air quality, the emission of greenhouse gases should also be taken into account. Controlling greenhouse emission includes clarifying the source, mechanism, impact factors, and pattern of emission. Emissions of pollutants sometimes increase greenhouse gas emissions, leading to extreme weather such as sand, dust, floods, and drought, and it increases the burden of disease and affects human health. Relevant research will share more extensive information to support the evaluation and prediction of human health in order to better understand health and disease information.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2500 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.
