Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High-concentration atmospheric aerosol, ozone, VOCs, nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, and other air pollutants pose a great threat to the ecosystem and to human health. In order to fully clarify the process of air pollution, advanced monitoring technology is needed. Remote sensing methods have unique advantages in monitoring the horizontal and vertical distribution of air pollutants, which can make up for the lack of spatial distribution monitoring of in situ monitoring networks. With the rapid development in recent decades, multiplatform remote sensing technologies, such as satellite, ground-based, mobile observation, and others, have been widely used in atmospheric environment monitoring applications. Remote sensing data on high-spatial–temporal-resolution air pollutants can be used to study the spatial–temporal distribution characteristics, transmission characteristics, and evolution mechanism of air pollution.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new Special Issue entitled “Study of Air Pollution Based on Remote Sensing”, which invites contributions presenting research on atmospheric environment remote sensing technology and its applications. This covers the design of atmospheric monitoring instruments, retrieval algorithms, observation experiments, data analysis research, health impact assessment, etc.

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.
