Special Issue "Emissions, Transport and Fate of Pollutants in the Atmosphere"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2020).
Interests: atmospheric transport; multiscale atmospheric modeling; turbulence and turbulent flows; planetary boundary layer meteorology; air quality modeling; air pollution; chemical transport models; aerosols emissions and transport; air-surface exchange; atmospheric dust
Air pollutants (including chemicals, pathogens, allergens, and toxics) go through many dynamical, physical, and chemical processes from emissions to deposition. Aerosols and gasses are released from various sources to the atmosphere, where they interact with the planetary boundary layer, radiation, and clouds. The transport and dispersion of pollutants may occur at various spatial and temporal scales before they are deposited back on land or water. There are still many scientific questions concerning multiscale and multiphysics phenomena that govern the emissions, transport, and fate of pollutants in the atmosphere.
This Special Issue is devoted to research that aims to improve our understanding of physical mechanisms controlling emissions, transport, and deposition of airborne pollutants, chemicals, pathogens, allergens, or toxics. We are especially interested in original research articles addressing the multiscale and multiphysics nature of these mechanisms. All theoretical, modeling, and observational studies are welcome. Some topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Air-surface exchange of pollutants
- Emissions due to atmosphere and land/water interactions
- Pollutants pathways in the atmosphere
- Long-range transport
- Wet/dry deposition processes

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.
