Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy Meteorology is an increasing field of research, interfacing renewable energy and atmospheric physics. Atmospheric physics is needed for the assessment and forecasting of the power output from solar and wind energy systems—and thus for the planning, monitoring, and efficient operation of these systems. Climatological data are usually used for the assessment of solar and wind energy resources, whereas near real time data and forecast of atmospheric variables are needed for the prediction of fluctuating power outputs. Thus, Energy Meteorology covers a wide range of methods and data.

Articles addressing methods dealing with the estimation, retrieval, or forecast of atmospheric variables relevant for renewables are welcome.
Methods can include:
- remote sensing, kriging and data fusion of atmospheric variables
- numerical weather prediction
- atmospheric motion vectors
- new observation strategies/systems
- data assimilation

The link of the methods and the derived data to solar and wind energy applications should be clearly demonstrated and discussed in the articles.

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 papers will be 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. Atmosphere 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 1000 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.
