Air-sea coupling is one of the most important processes that can affect weather, climate, and atmospheric chemical composition. Air-sea exchange of heat, water vapor, and momentum can affect sea surface temperature and upper temperature stratification and can affect atmospheric boundary layer stability. The ocean plays an important role in global budgets of numerous atmospheric trace compounds as a source and sink, and the reverse could also be true. Our understanding of air-sea coupling remains lacking or nebulous in many areas due in large part to incomplete fundamental knowledge, the scarcity of measurements, and poor representation in models, such as the effects of air-sea coupling on tropospheric cyclones, oceanic uptake and storage of carbon dioxide, and the role of air-sea interaction in climate dynamics, variability of atmospheric compounds and aerosols, ocean physics, and biogeochemistry. This Special Issue is aimed at addressing the most outstanding science questions/issues in these areas in hope to capture the most up-to-date advancement of air-sea coupling science.

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 1400 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.
