Special Issue Information
Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, as an application oriented science field of linking different disciplines and considering the whole biomass and food production systems, plays a key role in global food security, sustainable use of natural resources, ecosystem stability, biodiversity, and more, all affecting welfare of human kind. During the next few decades, global food and biomass demand will increase, setting further challenges for sustainable and effective use of the limited natural resources under manifold regional conditions in agriculture and forestry. Due to its significant land use share, relationships with climate system can be a key factor in GHG and extreme weather mitigation as well.
Due to the global digitalization trend, many methods developed in the past can be applied more efficiently and can better serve stakeholders in their needs. New data sources achievable from remote sensing, ground-based measurement systems, and the increasing performance of data mangement systems in combination with modelling tools, promise many useful applications in agriculture and forestry, not only for high input, but also for low input farming systems. Although there are still many gaps in agrometeorological databases, and weaknesses in applied methods or the transfer of information to farmers and its meaningful use, promising progress is also visible. In this context, we feel that this Special Issue of Atmosphere can contribute to the state-of-the-art and development of new ideas, especially in combination with challenges and new developments in meteorology applied for agriculture and forestry needs.
We invite contributions, especially in the field of atmospheric physics and meteorology relevant for agriculture and forestry (and its environmental interactions) considering global and climate change conditions, as well as application oriented research, including impact modelling, monitoring and forecasting (short and long term) supporting decision makers and stakeholders in better adapting to adverse weather conditions or changing climate.

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.
