Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this Special Issue of Atmosphere, we intend to address the different aspects of pollution caused by agricultural activities. These aspects include the use of pesticides, ammoniac, and other nitrogen compounds and particles.

For pesticides, levels, trends, and behaviours in the air, including monitoring (including indoor air), seasonal and temporal variabilities, and processes (drift, volatilisation, atmospheric reactivity) can be considered.

For ammoniac and nitrogen compounds (e.g., N2O) and particles (e.g., NH4NO2), discussions of their impacts on the formation of particles and on the climate are welcome.

All aspects of modelling, sampling strategies and methodologies, surveys, human (e.g., residents, disease occurrence) and environmental exposure (e.g., biodiversity) and effects may also be considered. Likewise, the biomonitoring of exposure assessment in relation to air pollution should also be considered (e.g., hair analysis in residents).

Authors may present long-term monitoring surveys to investigate the link between air quality in urban areas and agricultural particle formation, with a particular focus on the importance of agricultural particles in terms of global pollution by particles in urban areas with respect to traffic and domestic particle emissions.
