Special Issue "Precipitation: Measurement and Modeling"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2018)
The Special Issue aims to gather good-quality, timely research on precipitation from a broad perspective, in order to inform on the current state-of-the-art in the field, and to identify the key groups working on precipitation internationally. Apart from regular papers, local/regional studies of precipitation, negative results (such as models performing poorly when compared with observations), short papers and discussions/position papers are welcomed -if in doubt about the suitability of the research for the SI, potential authors are invited to discuss the idea with the Guest Editor before preparing the paper.
We invite papers on the following topics:
-Validation/Verification of precipitation estimates from NWP models, RCMs, GCMs and ESMs.
-Precipitation microphysics, including mp description, verification, comparison, and case studies.
-Satellite precipitation algorithms.
-Seasonal forecast of precipitation.
-Particle and Drop Size Distribution (PSD, DSD) research.
-Computing approaches (HPC, Cloud, etc.)
-Uncertainties in measuring precipitation at ground (gauges, disdrometers, radars)
-Spatial variability of precipitation, at any scales.
-Assimilation of precipitation in numerical models.
-Latent heat studies.
-Precipitation in hurricanes.
-TRMM and GPM studies.
-Precipitation from sounders.
-New observational concepts (including Geostationary sounders)
-Projects results or preliminary advances (CMIP5/6, HyMEX, CORDEX, CLIVAR, etc.)
-Precipitation climatologies, from local to global.
-Applications (hydropower, insurance, agriculture, hazards, etc.)
-Case studies focused on precipitation processes and/or uncertainties.
-Precipitation estimates for Biogeography.
-Coupling of precipitation from observations and models with hydrological models.
-Data fusion techniques (neural networks, etc.)
-Precipitation trends and analysis of series.
-Temporal variability of precipitation, including Climate Variability.
-Precipitation in future climates as featuring in models.

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 1400 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.
