Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Monitoring the atmosphere is crucial to understanding the sources of climate change and the impact that humans have on the Earth’s ecosystems. A precise and reliable estimation of emission sources from different sections is urgently required for a better understanding of greenhouse gas effects. Global observations from satellite instruments can extend the information available from in situ observations at sparse surface networks and aircraft campaigns to improve our knowledge of the processes controlling the emission and distribution of greenhouse gases and air pollutants, and to monitor their variability on different scales.

This Special Issue focuses on the methodology and application of remote sensing methods to estimate air pollutants and carbon emissions from human activity, large-scale power plants, the urban industry, long-range transport, as well as links to climate change with respect to air pollution. Original papers relating to the above topics, general methodologies, numerical and experimental investigations, and case studies addressing sustainable management and urban air quality are welcome. We look forward to your contributions.

Dr. Dmitry Belikov
Guest Editor

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.
