Special Issue Information
PM sensors, which possess advantages such as low cost and small size, can be used to provide information on the air quality in areas with limited regulatory monitoring stations. They are also expected to be applicable for hotspot identification, emission inventories of pollutants creation, and real-time exposure assessment, which help with the design of mitigation strategies. In order to improve the correctness of low-cost sensors datasets, the linear regression method, multivariate linear regression method, and deep-learning methods have been used to calibrate the values measured by low-cost sensors. However, measures for large-scale PM sensors network calibration and strategies for regional deployment are still in need of development.
This Special Issue aims to provide original and the state-of-the-art studies on the deployment of low-cost PM sensors for air-quality measurements. Studies on calibration methods for sensors networks, site selection protocols for sensors deployment, spatial–temporal characterization of PM concentrations, hotspot identification, exposure assessment, and source tracing based on sensor datasets are welcome. The applicability of sensor networks for environmental enforcement is also of interest.

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.
