Observations of the atmosphere at high altitude sites are of fundamental importance to understand the impact of changes in the chemical composition on climate, biodiversity and human health. Mountain areas are usually background sites for observing atmospheric composition that is slightly impacted by anthropogenic emissions, but at the same time they are places to study the role of the long-range transport of pollutants, how the local chemical composition changes due to atmospheric dynamics and the chemical implication of the mix between anthropogenic and biogenic emissions.
Studies of fire emissions and plume evolution, the role of orography on the change of chemical compounds, and the chemistry triggered by natural phenomena, such as lighting, are favoured in high altitude observatories, which can be considered a sort of atmospheric sentinel.

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.
