Special Issue "Observation, Simulation and Predictability of Fog "
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2020).
Interests: stable boundary layer; fog and low cloud; mesoscale modeling; large-eddy simulations; predictability
The societal impact of fog has significantly increased during recent decades due to increasing air, marine and road traffic. The financial cost related to fog has become comparable to the losses from other weather events like storms.
Recent studies highlight the remaining difficulties in predicting and measuring fog at various scales of time and space. This Special Issue is expected to represent an important step in the direction of addressing new scientific challenges in fog-related research, and operational applications. Therefore, we invite authors to submit original articles that aim to study fog and its variability and predictability at various scales. Intercomparison studies of well-documented events are also welcomed.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers).

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.
