Special Issue Information
Road traffic and road infrastructure represent a linear source of environmental pollution, often directly at the level of the surrounding terrain, which subsequently affects the dispersion of pollutants emitted by road traffic. The most serious problem is air contamination with pollutants (particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides, etc.) and noise emissions, primarily because of their significant impact on human health, especially in large cities with high traffic density. The damage to human health caused by PM emissions from road traffic can be disproportionately large compared to other sources of PM emissions, because the highest emission levels tend to be located in areas with the highest population density, leading to high levels of exposure. The share of PM emissions from non-exhaust sources has increased in recent years due to a significant reduction in the amount of PM from exhaust emissions. Non-exhaust emissions are expected to be responsible for the vast majority of PM emissions from road traffic in the coming years. Air quality levels are greatly important to society as extreme air pollution affects the environment and residential areas, especially in the winter months, when the combination of air pollution sources and secondary factors exceed the limit values of harmful substances intended to protect the health of people and animals. Therefore, it is advisable to know more about this problem, i.e. which pollutants are the critical ones, how high the concentrations of pollutants are, to what extent can they be harmful to humans, and which sources of air pollution are potential causes of harmful substances. Subsequently, based on a closer knowledge of the state and origin of air pollution, we can establish measures to improve air quality.

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.
