Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nature-based solutions provide strategic interventions to increase resilience and mitigate the adverse impacts of urbanization, industrial processes, and climate change. You are invited to contribute original research and review articles focused on the use of nature-based solutions to support air pollution abatement, climate resilience, thermal comfort, and urban sustainability for healthy and liveable neighbourhoods and cities. Research regarding the interactions between nature-based solutions and air quality, climatic processes, and heat across different urban, suburban, and peri-urban morphologies are also appropriate for inclusion in this Special Issue. Contributions may include experimental field research, modelling studies, biometeorological surveys, and methods and techniques for evaluating the impact of nature-based solutions on climatic conditions.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Interactions between nature-based solutions and air quality;
  • Climate-sensitive nature-based solutions for sustainable cities;
  • Urban climate conditions (e.g., UHI, humidity, radiation, precipitation, and wind) and nature-based solutions;
  • Nature-based solutions for urban heat and health;
  • Nature-based solutions for sustainable development.

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.
