You know this perfectly well that turbulence as a phenomenon still remains an unsolved scientific problem, both from the point of view of mathematics and from the point of view of physics. At the turn of the millennium, among the ten unsolved problems of the 20th century, the problem of describing the motion of fluid and gas was named. From the standpoint of our journal, we single out the problem of turbulence precisely as the natural state of the atmosphere. For the atmosphere of the Earth, turbulence, as a phenomenon affecting the transfer of heat and angular momentum, remains constant in the list of the most important problems. Many instruments and tools installed in different parts of the world are constantly monitored, collecting data and, thus, providing material for building models and theories. These tools require constant development, their mutual coordination and calibration. Astronomers, geophysicists, acoustics,experts in weather forecasting, they are all constantly associated with the manifestations of this phenomenon, or more correctly, the state of our atmosphere as a gaseous medium, which is in a turbulent state.
In recognition of this milestone, the open-access journal Atmosphere is hosting a Special Issue to showcase current atmospheric turbulence models, measurement capabilities, and results.
Original results, review papers, new measurement equipments, data and turbulence model related to the simulation of turbulent dynamics and interaction, both inside and outside atmosphere, are all welcome contributions.
The main goals are for this Special Issue to be a useful starting point for students, a valuable snapshot of the overarching field for practitioners, and a means of stimulating model interoperability, multidisciplinary collaborations, and new functionality, across the entire hierarchy, from idealized process modeling, to regional, global, fluid-interior, and whole-atmosphere simulations, to planetary operational forecasting.

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.
