Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Observations show that the atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) burden surges, contrary to pathways compatible with the Paris Agreement. Emergency actions are, thus, required to bring GHG back to a climate-neutral pathway. In recent years, substantial advances have been made toward greenhouse gas monitoring from ground, air and space. Particularly, very high spatial, temporal or spectral resolution measurements can fill important observational gaps in the identification and quantification of greenhouse gas emissions. Subsequent numerical simulations constrained by emerging measurements would help re-think the greenhouse gas burden from urban and regional to global scales. Regarding anthropogenic sources, such as power plants, coal mines, landfills and other fossil fuel industries, emission reduction measures are facilitated by technical advances at an ever-increasing speed. By comparison, efforts to reduce emissions from biogenic sources, such as wetlands, have received less attention but are becoming more feasible. It should be noted that emerging advances generally fail in sound uncertainty assessments and large-scope applications, which should, thus, be verified in abundant real cases. Moreover, there is no single magic bullet, but promoting a wide array of monitoring, measures and policies for emission reductions could significantly mitigate the global greenhouse gas burden in a cost-effective way and thereby, approach the climate-neutral aim.

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.
