Indexes are a well-known tool and have proven fundamental in the discovery and understanding of global teleconnection patterns (e.g., El-Nino, Atlantic Oscillations, Indian Ocean Dipole, Arctic Oscillations). Many more Indexes have been used to calculate the length of dry/wet spell, heat degrees, comfort, and mood of a person. A number of Indexes have been used in the literature to define the monsoon, soil moisture, teleconnections, and other climate–weather issues. Most of the Indexes are based on air temperature, precipitation, air pressure, and sea surface temperature. However, very few such Indexes are utilized for future datasets. For future projection dataset and special simulations, those may need modifications or may lead to new discoveries. Futuristic datasets will provide new opportunities to define some new Indexes for climate change. High-resolution modeling has brought many new variables to analyze the weather and climate. Those new variables (cloud mixing ratio, buoyancy, etc.) can be utilized to define new Indexes. The new fields, e.g., thunderstorm, cloud physics, hydrology, aerosol science, ice melt, and biosphere, have a great impact on climate change. Appropriate Indexes can be put together to access and analyze the climate change and global warning issue. New insights based on new Indexes, themselves in turn based on new advances and variables, can provide new dimensions to the climate change science. Multidisciplinary disciplines may join to access climate change using Indexes from their filed.

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.
