Special Issue Information
Atmospheric dispersion and chemical transport models (CTMs) are a key tool in atmospheric chemistry and environmental sciences. From urban air pollution modeling to ozone depletion, these models give us a picture, at different scales, of species concentrations’ distribution and pollutant deposition rates, among other relevant quantities. These models are able to make predictions in complex scenarios and help us to interpret the observational data, which are in some cases sparse and incomplete.
Many dispersion models and CTMs have been developed to date, both with Eulerian and Lagrangian approaches, each mostly focused on a particular spatial scale and application. A large portion of them do not generate their own meteorological field, which is previously computed by an external meteorological model. Their usefulness is not only constrained to scientific research, but also in support of environmental decision making. Thus, the characterization of model uncertainties and model validation plays a central role in the development applications for such models.
This Special Issue aims to publish papers related to all aspects involved in the development of atmospheric dispersion models and CTMs, such as the implementation of new physical and chemical schemes, the coupling with meteorological models, application studies related to atmospheric transport and chemistry, urban air quality assessments, and model evaluation.

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.
