There has been an increasing interest in atmospheric aerosols and clouds given their confirmed impact on meteorology, climate change and air quality, and how there is a large amount of uncertainty brought on by the variability in spatial and temporal distributions of aerosols, as well as aerosol–cloud and aerosol–planetary boundary layer (PBL) interactions. Advanced Lidar remote sensing techniques with different platforms, data quality control schemes and novel retrieval algorithms allow for the yielding of the vertical profiles of aerosol properties with a high temporal resolution at the regional and global scale. These observations have also been employed to further increase the current knowledge of aerosols, clouds or the PBL, as well as their natural and human-driven processes. This Special Issue entitled, “Understanding the Roles of Aerosols and Clouds in Environment, Meteorology and Climate with Advanced Lidar Remote Sensing Techniques”, aims to report any new Lidar technique developments, new retrieval algorithms alongside their applications, featured observations for aerosols, clouds and their processes, and findings on aerosol-cloud and aerosol-planetary boundary layer interactions. Both comprehensive reviews and research articles on aerosol and cloud observations are welcome to be submitted that include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Novel instruments;
- Measurement methods and algorithms;
- Vertical profiles of aerosol optical and microphysical properties;
- Aerosol emissions, transport and removal;
- Cloud macro- and micro-physical properties and cloud processes;
- Aerosol–cloud and aerosol–planetary boundary layer (PBL) interactions;
- Spaceborne, airborne, shipborne and ground-based lidar observations for featured areas;
- Measurement campaigns of wildfire;
- Volcanic eruptions;
- Dust storms and extreme air pollution.

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. Remote Sensing 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 2700 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.
