Remote Sensing of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 December 2020) | Viewed by 8387
Atmospheric carbon dioxide is a dominant greenhouse gas that influences global warming and climate change, and significantly contributes to the carbon cycle on Earth. An understanding of carbon dioxide sources, sinks, and transport flux is critical for developing assessments through the scientific community and informing policymakers. Mitigating carbon dioxide upsurge is a societal issue that requires continuous monitoring and evaluations through current measurement techniques and improved future technologies.
The goal of this Special Issue is to embrace a variety of established and ongoing research activities regarding techniques and technologies for atmospheric carbon dioxide measurements. In particular, active and passive remote sensors, which provide high spatial and temporal throughput, are needed to develop future warming estimates and climate predictions. In addition, in-situ sensors, which provide high-accuracy measurements, but with limited coverage, are required for remote sensing validations. Original contributions and reviews articles are encouraged on the following topics:
- Updated performance models for carbon dioxide sensing techniques
- Mature and improved technologies for carbon dioxide remote sensing
- Techniques and technologies for carbon dioxide in-situ sensors
- Sensor data processing and analysis
- Carbon dioxide dry-air mixing ratio retrievals
- Error budgets and mitigations

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 2400 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.
