Air–sea interaction is one of the essential processes for ocean dynamics. Air–sea exchange of heat, vapor, particles, contaminants and momentum can affect ocean waves/currents, sea surface temperature, and seawater composition. Our understanding of air–sea interaction on ocean dynamics remains lacking or nebulous in many areas due in large part to incomplete fundamental knowledge, the large range of scales involved, the scarcity of measurements, and inadequate representation in models, such as the effects of air–sea heat and momentum fluxes on upper ocean turbulence, wind-wave generation and Langmuir circulation, and ocean biochemistry. In this context, this Special Issue is aimed at addressing the most outstanding issues in these areas in the hope of capturing the most up-to-date advancement of air–sea interaction science with a focus on ocean dynamics.

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 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 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.
