Special Issue "Atmospheric Trace Gas Source Detection and Quantification"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 February 2021).
Atmospheric trace gas measurements are a widespread research tool through which we seek to enhance our understanding of the physical and chemical processes occurring around us. Increasingly, focus in this area of research is turning towards detection and quantification of specific trace gas sources in order to inform and/or address questions with broad impacts in fields such as health and human safety, climate change, indoor and outdoor air quality, and national security/defense. We are pleased to announce that this Special Issue of Atmosphere will focus on the broad topic of atmospheric trace gas source detection and quantification. We invite researchers to submit original research manuscripts in areas related to this topic which may include, but are not limited to, techniques/methods for characterizing sources of specific trace gases, methods/frameworks for trace gas source characterization which are independent from sensing platforms, novel demonstrations of trace gas source characterization, and new proposed methods which enable trace gas source detection and quantification. Manuscripts addressing topics which would be of interest to a broad audience are preferred, but more focused studies are not necessarily discouraged.

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 1800 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.
