Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Emissions from anthropogenic and natural sources alter the composition of the atmosphere and hence its radiative properties. In addition, emitted particulate matter and gas-to-particle conversion may provide cloud condensation nuclei that affect cloud and precipitation formation. The main objective of this special issue is to discuss how past, current and future changes in emissions at various scales affect climate in the regions of the emissions themselves as well as in their downwind.
