Travel Award Winner 2019
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winners of the Atmosphere 2019 Travel Award: Dr. Efstratios Bourtsoukidis and Dr. Brice Coffer. They will receive 800 Swiss Francs each to cover the cost of participation at a conference of their choice.
Dr. Efstratios Bourtsoukidis is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Atmospheric Chemistry Department, Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz, Germany. His research interests include non-methane hydrocarbon (NMHC) sources and sinks, volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the soil biosphere-atmosphere interface and temperature driven VOC emissions from global vegetation: experimental and meta-analysis studies. This award will support him to communicate his current research results at the 19th GEIA Conference: The Global Emission Initiative’s efforts to accelerate societal transformations.
Dr. Brice Evan Coffer is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. His current research focus is on improving the Significant Tornado Parameter using near-ground storm-relative helicity. His future research will focus on tornadogenesis/failure in multi-storm simulations of supercells and infrasound produced by severe convective storms. This award will support him to attend the European Conference on Severe Storms.
Congratulations to Dr. Efstratios Bourtsoukidis and Dr. Brice Evan Coffer!

Dear Colleagues and Researchers,
The Atmosphere Editorial Board and Editorial Team would like to gratefully acknowledge the time and energy given by reviewers in checking and reviewing manuscripts submitted to Atmosphere. It is due to their effort that the high quality of the journal and quick turnaround are maintained.
The Associate Editor of Atmosphere, Prof. Dr. Anthony R. Lupo, has selected five awardees to receive the “Atmosphere 2018 Outstanding Reviewer Awards” for the quantity, timeliness, and quality of their reviews in 2018:
- Chul-Su Shin (George Mason University)
- Kamae Youichi (University of Tsukuba)
- Zhiwei Zhu (Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology)
- Bidyut Bikash Goswami (New York University Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi)
- Panagiotis Kokkalis (Kuwait University)
Congratulations to all of them on their excellent reviews and well-earned awards!
Outstanding Reviewer Award 2018
To acknowledge our reviewers who so generously give their time to review papers submitted to Atmosphere, on behalf of the Associate Editor, Prof. Dr. Anthony R. Lupo, we plan to dedicate an award to reviewers who prove their dedication, professionalism, and timeliness in reviewing manuscripts for Atmosphere.
Although anonymous peer-review is one of the cornerstones of publishing high quality comprehensive manuscripts for the advancement of science and engineering research, it is also often one of the most underappreciated of the many requests and demands made on subject experts. It is for this reason that the Atmosphere editorial office is extremely grateful to reviewers for the time, energy and dedication that they freely provide to support their peers.
What are the pre-requisites to be eligible for this award?
- All the reviewers for Atmosphere in 2018 will automatically be included.
What awards will be granted?
- Five awardees will be chosen this year.
The top two winners will receive:
- 500 Swiss Francs (CHF)
- A certificate
Three additional winners will receive:
- A certificate
When will the winners be announced?
- The winners will be announced early in 2019 on the journal website.
How to be included for a chance to win?
- For those of you who have not yet reviewed papers for the journal but would like to do so, you can easily register as a reviewer at: https://susy.mdpi.com/volunteer/profile/edit
Travel Awards 2018
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, I am pleased to announce the winners of the Atmosphere 2018 Travel Awards for Young Investigations: Travel Awards were granted to Dr. Yue Zhang, a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering in the Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC, USA, for his outstanding research on how phase state and multiphase chemistry jointly impact formation processes and climate effects of organic aerosols; and to Dr. Lucas Henneman, a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston, MA, USA, for his outstanding research on the source-specific effects of NOx emissions on urban and rural ozone production efficiency in the eastern United States.
The awards consist of 800 Swiss Francs each to attend an academic conference during 2018.
