Interests: radar hydrometeorology; hydrological modeling; hydrology; remote sensing; atmospheric physics; precipitation; water resources; rainfall runoff modeling; rainfall; extreme events; climate change
Weather radars have been a primary tool for monitoring and short-term forecasting precipitation, with high temporal and spatial resolutions. The advancements in technologies and radar networks have allowed to explore their uses in, not only improving weather observations and Quantitative Precipitation Estimation (QPE) and Forecasting (QPF), but also in various interdisciplinary fields and applications toward supporting decision makers for better management of hazardous weather events.
This Special Issue focuses on the recent achievements and lessons learnt in various applications using operational or research radar data; e.g., QPE, very short-term forecasting of precipitation, precipitation climatology, hydrological modeling and forecasting, natural hazard assessment, aviation, road management, and even for some applications of non-meteorological weather radar observations. We encourage contributions on the current state-of-the-art in the field, including challenges and discussions toward better utilization of radar data.
We invite manuscripts on the following topics:
- Radar Networking
- Radar data validation or merging with other sensors (ground/spaceborne based instruments)
- Quantitative Precipitation Estimation
- Nowcasting techniques
- Assimilation of radar data in NWP
- Hydrological applications using weather radar
- Use of weather radar data in natural hazard assessment, agriculture, insurance, road management
- Studies on non-meteorological radar data

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.
