There is a growing realization that unfavorable meteorological conditions (e.g., heat waves) and air pollution could be able to pose serious threat to human health. Many countries and regions have been conducting a series of measures to mitigate the impacts of extreme weather and air pollution and obtained huge human health benefits (e.g., the Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan in China). However, the pollution level in some countries and regions is still very high. In particular, the promulgation of WHO AQG (2021) puts forward higher requirements for air pollution control around the world. Thus, it is fundamental to explore the characteristics of atmospheric pollutants related to human health (e.g., PM2.5 and its chemical compositions, ozone, and the precursors), identify the key influencing meteorological factors and processes, illustrate the formation mechanism, transport and sources, improve the forecasting accuracy, accurately evaluate human exposure to air pollution and unfavorable meteorological condition, establish more specific exposure-response relationship, and propose more reasonable and precise control strategies. These studies will provide a scientific basis for air pollution prevention and control with the goal of maximizing health benefits.
The original research and reviews, focusing on meteorological conditions and air pollution mentioned above (but are not limited to) at the urban and regional scales, and epidemiology studies influenced by unfavorable meteorology or air pollution, are welcome in this Special Issue. In addition, the multi-source dataset (in situ, satellite data, other retrievals) and technical note on various methods (e.g., statistical methods, numerical models, and machine learning), as well as up-to-date technology, are also 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. 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.
