Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollution is a very serious problem for the global population; millions of people die every year because of inflammatory diseases affecting the respiratory system and caused by harmful substances in the air.

Many countries exhibit air pollutant concentration levels higher than the threshold values suggested by legislation, leading to a negative impact on human health and food production. In light of this, AI can help analyse and predict air pollution; in addition, it plays a key role in expanding the global air pollution monitoring network.

Finally, AI-inspired innovations allow us to fight air pollution so as to ensure livability and a sustainable future for the environment as well as the well-being of individuals and the community.

Aside from air pollution, another issue that deserves the community's attention and action is urban flooding.

This environmental topic has become more prominent in recent years since it has become a source of significant economic and human loss.

Hydrological models represent an effective tool for monitoring, forecasting, and controlling flood risk in urban areas.

They are widely used for urban water and disaster management because they allow for the simulation of the motion processes of floods and predict flood-caused consequences in urban environments. Finally, they are useful for planning sustainable measures for reducing the flood risk in urban areas.

Given the above, this Special Issue aims to collect scientific research achievements and future academic development trends related, but not limited, to the topics listed below:

Topics of Interest:

Chances and risks of AI

Environment monitoring with computer vision

Real-world modelling for calculation and forecasting

Smart disaster response

Water efficiency and drought control

Real-time air monitoring and management

Species protection based on big data

Smart cities and sustainable urban planning

Global vision of ocean protection

Smart sorting for wastes

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.
