Large-scale atmospheric circulation variability can be characterized by teleconnection patterns, which feature circulation anomalies being related to each other at large distances. Teleconnections and their related anomalies are forced externally or by the slow internal climate dynamics, and there is growing confidence that these can be forecasted. Anomalous atmospheric circulations influence temperature and precipitation fields, the two most important climate elements. Thus, it is of great consequence to explore atmospheric circulation variability, its forming and maintenance mechanisms, and its climate impacts. For example, the tropical El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) associated teleconnections impact North America, as embodied mainly by the Pacific-North American teleconnection pattern. Since ENSO-related sea surface temperatures are predictable several seasons ahead, knowledge of the relevant teleconnection patterns provides important implications for improving the North American climate forecast skill on seasonal to interannual time scales.
This Special Issue intends to collect articles on large-scale atmospheric circulation variability and its climate impacts. We invite contributions that deal with atmosphere/ocean variability and predictability on various time scales, in particular studies of atmospheric circulation patterns, tropical–extratropical interaction and teleconnections, and impacts of these patterns and processes on regional and global climate, climate predictability and predictions. We welcome submissions including original and review articles on the topic that aim to advance our understanding of the climate variability, climate dynamics, climate predictability, and projected climate change.

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 1500 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.
