Special Issue Information
Shipping is an important global source for air pollutants and greenhouse gases. With the continuous increase in international maritime trade, shipping emissions and their environmental and health impacts have attracted increased attention globally over the past decades. Ships emit air pollutants that contribute to adverse impacts on air quality, on the health of people living near ports and highly frequented shipping lanes and contribute to the eutrophication and acidification of marine and terrestrial ecosystems. Air pollutants directly emitted by ships interact with other air pollutants, forming secondary pollutants including ozone and secondary aerosols contributing to these impacts. At the same time, greenhouse gas emissions stay on a high level, and efficiency gains are counteracted by increased transport volumes. The last decade has witnessed graduated strengthening of regulations on air pollutants from shipping and on marine fuel oil, recognizing this as a concern of global scale and stimulating shipping emission related research. This Special Issue of Atmosphere aims to promote scientific and technical communications in this field. Original results with respect to shipping emissions, air pollution modeling and its impacts, field and laboratory observations and review papers related to shipping emissions are all welcome contributions.
The topics of interest for the Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
Emission inventories from ships and ports;
Monitoring techniques of shipping emissions;
Impacts of shipping emissions on air quality on scales from local to global;
Interactions of shipping emissions with other sector sources;
Comprehensive impacts of policies for shipping, particularly regarding low sulfur fuel oils, nitrogen oxides emission control and greenhouse gas reductions;
Impacts of shipping emissions on human health, marine and terrestrial ecosystems and climate change.

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.
