Special Issue Information
Benefiting from better nature and economic environments, an increasing population has migrated from inland areas to coastal cities in China during the last several decades and, thus, accelerated the expansion of the latter. An increasing energy consumption, urbanization, ocean exploitation, etc., generate short-term stresses mitigating air pollution and long-term challenges to confront the climate change. Although the air quality in most coastal cities in China is better than that in inland cities, the exceedance of air pollutants in former cities has been continuously reported, to some extent, including some extreme air pollution events. The air pollution reflects a variety of mixed contributions and interactions from natural and anthropogenic emissions, inland and marine emissions, transported and localized sources. The complexity raises the difficulties of improving the air quality in coastal cities from a relatively low level to an even lower level. Moreover, to address climate changes such as carbon peak and neutrality in coastal environments of China, the complexity is as high as that regarding air pollution.
In recognition of the complexity, the open access journal Atmosphere is hosting a Special Issue to showcase the most recent findings and new directions related to air pollution, climate issues and the links in between of coastal atmospheres in China, encouraging overview papers regarding inter-disciplinary campaigns in coastal atmospheres. Original results related to emissions, field and laboratory experiments, managements and policies, models and review papers are all welcome as contributions
