Special Issue "Air Pollution in the Asia-Pacific Region"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2016).
Interests: ozone; VOC; PM2.5
Interests: emission; regional air pollution; transboundary air pollution
Interests: numerical modeling; urban heat island; urban air pollution
Interests: aerosol; chemical reaction
With rapid industrialization and urbanization in developing countries over the past several decades, the problem of air pollution has become aggravated, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. The degradation of air quality has had adverse effects on human health and the ecosystem. Moreover, air pollution causes climate change, which in turn influences air quality. Under these circumstances, this Special Issue aims to offer an opportunity to present scientific approaches, related to the Asia-Pacific region, for solving regional and global atmospheric issues, such as road-side and urban air pollution, wet and dry deposition, the long-range transport of photochemical ozone and PM2.5, and climate change.

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 1500 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.
