Special Issue "Atmospheric Metal Pollution"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2018).
Interests: mercury biogeochemical cycling; mercury exposure and health; mercury stable isotopes; remediation of mercury contaminated lands
Toxic metals can be transported in the atmosphere as gas or/and fine particulates over long distances, causing adverse impacts to both terrestrial and aquatic environments in remote areas after depositing to the Earth’s surface. Coal combustion, metal smelting and other human activities release a large amount of toxic metals into the atmosphere. Understanding the sources of atmospheric metal pollution and transport and deposition pathways are crucial to understanding the environmental impacts of toxic metal pollution on ecosystems.
This Special Issue will cover all aspects of atmospheric metal pollution issues, such as the emission inventory of toxic metals to the atmosphere, the speciation and size distributions of toxic metals in the atmosphere, the isotopic compositions of metals in airborne particulate matters, the source attributions of toxic metals in the atmosphere, as well as local-, regional- and global-scale transport modelling of toxic metals in the atmosphere.

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.
