Special Issue Information
Global navigation satellite systems (GNSSs) have become one of the predominant remote sensing systems. GNSS remote sensing can be used to accurately measure precipitable water vapor (PWV), slant water vapor (SWV), zenith total delay (ZTD), slant total delay (STD), horizontal gradients, atmospheric refractivity, snow depth, soil moisture and wave height in the atmosphere and environment. GNSS remote sensing has become a new era of atmospheric sounding as well as severe climate and weather monitoring. GNSS remote sensing not only leads to a better understanding of climate and weather changes, but also helps to monitor and accurately forecast severe weather events, mitigate natural disasters and save human lives.
We present a Special Issue of Atmosphere titled “GNSS Remote Sensing in Atmosphere and Environment”. We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with original research and review articles on topics including, but not limited to:
- Water vapor retrievals based on GNSS, radiosonde, microwave radiometer, and other observation systems;
- Multi-sensor data assimilation and model optimization;
- Weather, climate, and environment monitoring using GNSS remote sensing;
- Short-term rainstorm monitoring and forecasting based on GNSS-derived tropospheric parameters (ZTD, ZWD or PWV);
- Machine learning, artificial intelligence and deep learning algorithms and applications in weather prediction and climate analyses using GNSS remote sensing;
- New research and applications of GNSS remote sensing in atmosphere and environment.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2000 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.
