Special Issue "Atmospheric Acoustic-Gravity Waves"
A special issue of Atmosphere (ISSN 2073-4433).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2019).
Acoustic-gravity waves exist in the atmosphere constantly and affect many processes in the atmosphere: chemical composition, jet currents, and vertical temperature profile. Rapid weather changes can often be associated with the existence of atmospheric internal gravity waves, which are a special case of acoustic-gravity waves. Often, the occurrence of these waves is due to meteorological processes in which large amounts of heat are released/absorbed due to water vapor condenses or water droplets evaporate. Acoustic-gravity waves are often the forerunners of extreme hydrodynamic phenomena such as tornadoes and convection. Therefore, observations of these waves and their study contribute to reducing risks. Formed in the atmosphere by intense convection, squalls can be dangerous for aviation.
This Special Issue of the journal focuses on acoustic-gravity waves. We are looking for studies that investigate acoustic-gravity waves; their generation; the propagation of waves from various sources, including waves arising from sea-surface oscillations during storms and tsunamis; and waves arising when air flows around orographic obstacles; as well as research on the interaction of waves with the atmosphere. Research based on observations and research based on the modeling of the phenomena under study are both welcome. Manuscripts can also focus on the effects of these waves on jet currents and the atmospheric temperature regime, or on the ionosphere. Also, manuscripts on the experimental study and modeling of tornadoes, investigations of acoustic-gravity waves generated by this phenomenon, and their registration, and observations of tornadoes on the waves generated by this phenomenon, are welcome. We would also like to include research on the effects of acoustic-gravity waves on people and the environment.

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 papers will be 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 1400 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.
