Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

Tropospheric chemistry has grown tremendously as a research discipline over the last two decades. Chemical processing of gases and particles emitted by biogenic and anthropogenic sources is central to the linked issues of urban air quality and radiative forcing of climate. Instrumentation development has led to new insights in both homogenous and heterogeneous chemistry in laboratory and field studies while remote sensing from space allows for a global view of tropospheric composition. This special issue is seeking manuscripts synthesizing knowledge or presenting new research on the changing composition of the troposphere and processes that shape trace gas and aerosol distributions. Manuscripts describing current understanding of HOx radical recycling and oxidation capacity, halogen atom chemistry, oxidation mechanisms, surface reactions, and the condensed phase chemistry of particle formation and growth are especially welcome.

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. 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 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).
