Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Regional climate modeling, since its beginning in the late 1980s, has evolved in terms of model complexity, horizontal resolution, physical parameterization, etc. Regional climate models (RCMs) have been used in a wide range of applications, including an understanding of physical processes, seasonal climate predictions, and climate change simulations. Recently, through the use of non-hydrostatic configurations, convective permitting simulations have also been carried out, allowing improvements in the investigation of various mesoscale systems. The aim of this Special Issue is to publish articles focused on these recent advances in regional climate modeling. The keywords below indicate the wide spectrum of topics that can be addressed in this issue.

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 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.
