Special Issue "Air Pollution Modelling: Local-, Regional-, and Global-Scale Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2019).
Interests: air quality modeling; local and long-range transport; source-receptor relationships
Air pollution problem is inevitably accompanied to our human activities. Severe air pollution situations have been reported especially in emerging countries, and satisfying the air quality standards fully have been still underlying issues. Today, modeling researches is one of the valuable approaches to promote our understanding on the behavior of air pollutants and to be used as regulatory, policy, and environmental decision makings. Such a modeling application range with regard to horizontal grid resolution varied from a few km (local) to hundreds of km (regional) to thousands of km (global).
To foster our current scientific knowledge on modeling potentialities and limitations, we would like to call scientific papers related to air pollution modeling applied for urban-, regional-, and global-scale on this special issue in the journal of Atmosphere. By collecting devoted papers, this theme seeks the future strategies for modeling researches across multi-scales. Modeling is not limited on the Eulerian and Lagrangian models, and other modeling techniques (e.g., box model, receptor model) are welcome. The online-coupled chemical transport model integrated with meteorological model will also contribute to this special issue. This topic would represent a notable contribution to this important scientific field.

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.
