Special Issue "Remote Sensing Applications for Urban Air Quality Research: The Continuing Challenge"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2019).
One of the main questions and challenges in the current research is how increased urbanization impacts air quality and how it will affect future environmental conditions. To answer this question, we need not only a deep knowledge and realistic consideration of the weather, climate and models, but also a set of continuous monitoring observations from the ground and space of vital environmental parameters. This knowledge is especially needed by policy- and decision-makers to moderate the risks and to regulate urban developments.
Remote-sensing assessments from satellite instruments have become increasingly important for assessing ground or tropospheric conditions. These methods have evolved rapidly over the past 10 years, with numerous applications relevant to environmental and public health. In this Special Issue we would like to provide a state-of-the-art synthesis of these methods and their applications for sensing ground-level conditions.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Air monitoring
- Green space assessment
- Traffic assessment
- Data sufficiency for air quality monitoring using wide range of measurements
- Sources of air pollution
- Passive and active sensing of air pollution
- Human exposure
- Urban heat island vs air pollution

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.
