It is our pleasure to present a new Special Issue dedicated to long-term research on the most dynamic atmospheric components: gases, aerosols, and atmospheric precipitations. Gaps in knowledge of the properties of atmospheric air, environmental processes, where gaseous and aerosol particles are involved in, and the connection between activities for environmental protection and policy decisions in the field of international agreements on climate change issues have resulted in a stable significant increase in long-term research on this topic.
Many studies were included in national and international projects, and the number of scientific forums increased over the years. In 1960–1970, the developed countries of Europe and North America faced the problem of acid depositions characterized by fugitive SO2 emissions, which led to serious ecological consequences primarily connected with the acidification of the environment. This led to the establishment of the atmospheric deposition monitoring system and efforts to reduce the emissions of sulfur and other hazardous substances. These activities resulted in considerable progressive improvement in the ecological situation in Europe as a whole.
Complex international projects, connected with research on global climate change and environmental pollution, usually contain atmosphere–ocean–land interplay clusters focused on the study of atmospheric aerosol properties and their role in various biogeochemical cycles in the biosphere. Special attention was given to the study of the cycle of carbon in the Arctic Region. Meteorological conditions, synoptical processes, volcanic activity, wildfires, dust storms, industry, and many other natural and anthropogenic factors significantly affect the quality of air.
This Special Issue aims to establish a community of authors and readers to discuss long-term research on the quality of air and follow trends in the dynamics of its variability. We welcome studies dedicated to the various fields of air quality and its variability analyses.

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 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.
