Special Issue "Coupled Fire-Atmosphere Simulation"
A special issue of Atmosphere (ISSN 2073-4433). This special issue belongs to the section "Biosphere/Hydrosphere/Land–Atmosphere Interactions".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2020).
Interests: bushfire; wildfire; fire weather; modelling; fire–atmosphere interaction
Atmosphere is dedicating this Special Issue to communicating the latest developments in coupled fire–atmosphere modelling. In the last few decades, considerable effort has been put into the design and implementation of models that enable consideration of the two-way interaction between fire and the atmosphere. These models have provided insights into the distinctly dynamic nature of wildfire propagation across a landscape and are continuing to contribute to leading edge wildfire science.
This Special Issue provides an opportunity for those involved in modelling the fire–atmosphere system across a range of scales—from fine-scale combustion dynamics to large pyroconvective events—to present their work in a dedicated volume. We therefore invite you to contribute articles to this Special Issue that highlight advances, new insights, technical issues and emerging research directions associated with existing and emerging coupled fire–atmosphere modelling frameworks. Contributions that describe idealised simulations as well as real-world case studies are welcome.
It is our intention that this Special Issue will help to promote discussion of important modelling issues and highlight synergies and linkages across the various modelling platforms and reasearch groups, which will lead to fruitful collaboration and progress in modelling the fire–atmosphere system at relevant scales.

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 1800 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.
