Precipitation is one of the hardest to predict and measure quantities. However, the amount, duration and time of precipitation is of great importance for agricultural, water management, generation of hydropower, flood protection, shipping, and many more sectors. Water demands have increased tremendously over the last 70 years due to nearly quadrupling of the world population. This Special Issue aims at advancing our current knowledge on precipitation. Articles addressing measurement and modeling issues, as well as parameterization of precipitation, are welcome. Additionally, investigations on precipitation changes over timeframes longer than 30 years, and improved gridded datasets with high resolution of precipitation are encouraged too. Furthermore, papers addressing the impact of air pollution, land-use and land-cover changes, as well as wind farms on precipitation, are sought.

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 1400 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.
