Interests: remote sensing; light scattering; radiative transfer; inverse problems; atmospheric optics; retrieval of aerosol and cloud properties from spaceborne observations
Various solid and liquid macroscopic particles (including cloud droplets and crystals) reside in atmosphere.
They interact with atmospheric gases and influence both climate and human health. Therefore, it is of importance to develop new instrumentation and improve existing techniques for the determination of particulate matter vertical columns in atmosphere. The chemical composition of aerosol particles is also of a great interest.
The main subject of this issue is to discuss recent trends and results in the area of remote sensing of atmospheric aerosol and clouds using ground, airborne, shipborne, and satellite optical instrumentation (in particular, spectrometers and radiometers). This requires the solution of inverse problem of the radiative transfer theory. Therefore, the papers dealing with various aspects of light scattering and radiative transfer in atmosphere are particularly welcome.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 quarterly journal published by MDPI.
