Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

According to the World Health Organization, nowdays, 9 out of 10 people breathe air containing high levels of pollutants. Air pollution is a public health concern, and the exposure to air pollutants in urban areas can cause severe health problems such as increased morbidity and mortality and alterations in the respiratory, cardiovascular, and cerebrovascular systems. Thus, since approximately 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, there is a great need to advance our scientific understanding of air pollution in urban areas to improve air quality and protect public health.

This Special Issue aims to gather submissions of novel and original papers and reviews on urban air pollution, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Urban atmospheric chemistry
  • In situ and satellite-based observations of trace gases and particulates
  • Air pollution and meteorology
  • Air quality modeling
  • Pollution control measures
  • Quantification of pollutant emissions at urban scales

This list is not exhaustive and all relevant research will be considered.

Dr. Juan Andrés Casquero-Vera
Guest Editor
