Special Issue Information
The mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is important in the quest to alleviate human-induced climate change. Agricultural activities such as the application of synthetic and organic nutrients, tillage, and enteric fermentation contribute 10–14% of global anthropogenic GHG emissions, including carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane. In recent years, much research work has been done around the world in exploring the mechanisms of GHG production/emissions/transfer processes and developing effective measures for the mitigation of GHG emissions from agricultural systems.
This Special Issue is a follow-up of the first Special Issue entitled “Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions” (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/atmosphere/special_issues/agricultural_greenhouse_gas). The aim is to enhance our scientific understanding of GHG emissions from agricultural systems and to use such information to develop the best management practices (BMPs) to minimize GHG emissions while maintaining agricultural production.
Original research, systematic review, meta-analysis, and model studies related to the theme of agricultural greenhouse gas emissions are welcome. Example topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Effect of agricultural management practices (fertilization, tillage, crop rotation, irrigation/drainage, animal/green manure, biochar, etc.) on GHG emissions from agricultural production systems;
- Laboratory or field studies investigating GHG emissions from soil freeze–thaw cycles;
- Meta-analyses of strategies to reduce GHG emissions;
- Development of techniques in measurement and estimation of GHG emissions;
- Reduction of GHG emissions from the enteric fermentation and livestock production systems;
- Model approaches in estimating GHG emissions at regional or global scales;
- Benefit–cost analysis of GHG emissions.
We very much look forward to receiving your submissions.

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.
