Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollution episodes are usually the result of heavy anthropogenic emissions and unfavorable meteorological conditions. Given the fact that anthropogenic emissions have decreased substantially globally, unfavorable meteorological conditions have become a key factor, or even a direct trigger, for the emergence of air pollution episodes.

Atmospheric particle pollution is a result of the accumulation and generation of particles in the planetray boundary layer. Impact factors are not limited to anthropogenic emissions, but also include temperature, relative humidity, wind in both horizontal and vertical extents and their diurnal variations, the development of the planetary boundary layer, climate change, and some extreme meteorological events. Besides, atmospheric particles such as black carbon can also have non-negligible feedback on meteorological conditions, such as the vertical structure of the temperautre in the planetray boundary layer.

Therefore, an indepth understanding of the interactions between atmospheric particles and meteorological factors is needed to develop better atmospheric pollution control measures. Studies that illuminate the physical and chemical mechanisms of the formation of atmospheric particle pollution and feedback effects are especially welcome. Long-time statistical and modeling analyses of the interactions between atmospheric particles and climate change are also welcome

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.
