Special Issue Information
The air–sea interaction controls the exchange of mass, momentum, and heat between the atmosphere and the ocean. It significantly affects the development of atmospheric and ocean systems from the subscale to the global scale. In particular, the tropical cyclones (TCs) that pose an important threat to people's lives and property in coastal and offshore regions are accompanied by strong air–sea interactions. TCs cause high winds, extreme waves, and storm surges, which pose a major hazard to offshore activities and coastal areas. The process of the air–sea interaction plays an important role in the development of these extreme marine events. Improving the understanding of air–sea interaction processes, and describing these extreme processes in weather forecast models and air–sea coupling models, can improve their predictions and reduce potential damage. Although our ability to simulate the weather, ocean, and air–sea interactions has generally improved in recent years, there is still a lot of uncertainty, especially under extreme conditions. The goal of this research topic is to collect information on air–sea interactions in tropical ocean regions and how to improve the simulation and forecasting capabilities of extreme weather and ocean processes. We particularly welcome research with a focus on the following topics: air–sea interaction processes, boundary layer processes (such as air–wave, wave–current, and tide–surge interactions); optimization of key parameters of numerical models, simulation of extreme processes (such as tropical cyclones, extreme waves, storm surges) and their mechanisms; and the impact of climate change on atmospheric and oceanic extreme events. We also welcome research on the improvement of air–sea coupling models, the method of data assimilation, and the application of remote sensing data in these topics.

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.
