Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Terrestrial atmosphere contains various gases and also condensed matter in forms of clouds and aerosol particles. Its chemical composition varies with time and highly dependent on a particular location. Also gases, atmospheric aerosol, and clouds are not independent entities but they highly interact. In particular, clouds can not form in atmosphere containing no aerosol and a large fraction of atmospheric aerosol is created in atmosphere from a gaseous phase.

An important scientific question is related to the quantification of the spatial distribution of various pollutants (e.g., particulate matter, NO2, SO2, organic compounds, soot, etc.) and also influence of changes in atmospheric composition on climate. The correspondent issues can be addressed only on the basis of observations, preferably using global satellite measurements.

The focus of this special issue is on the modern methods of atmospheric remote sensing, including remote sensing of

  • trace gases;
  • clouds;
  • atmospheric aerosol.
