Special Issue Information
The steady rise in atmospheric long-lived greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations is the main driver of contemporary climate change. Many GHGs occur naturally in the atmosphere (i.e., carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide), while others are anthropogenic. The latter include, for example, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and perfluorocarbons (PFCs), as well as sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). Human activities increase atmospheric concentrations of both natural and synthetic GHGs. GHGs remain in the atmosphere for different amounts of time and some of them are more effective than others at warming the atmosphere. Anthropogenic GHG emissions have increased since the pre-industrial era and are now higher than ever. Long-term, high-quality, atmospheric measurements are crucial for quantifying trends in greenhouse gas fluxes and attributing them to fossil fuel emissions, changes in land use and management, or the response of natural land and ocean ecosystems to climate change. In this Special Issue, we seek to publish innovative papers which investigate long-term observations of GHGs, the influence of atmospheric transport patterns, and the key processes driving measured concentration levels.

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 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.
