Special Issue Information
The rapid economic growth and urbanisation that have been ongoing for more than four decades have led to dramatic changes to atmospheric compositions and characteristics in China, driving various environmental and climate problems on different temporal and spatial scales. Fortunately, a series of policies and measures have been implemented by the Chinese government to control atmospheric pollution emissions and restore the ecosystem, contributing greatly to ameliorating the air quality. Additionally, COVID-19 related shutdown and quarantines have offered a rare opportunity to observe and evaluate the variation characteristics and influencing factors of air quality. As such, it is of great importance and value to study the temporal and spatial distribution and variation characteristics of key indexes of air quality at regional and national scale, based on multiple observation and analysis techniques.
The aim of this Special Issue hosted by the open-access journal Atmosphere is to improve our knowledge of major advances, findings and insights of key indexes of air quality across China. The topics cover all related research fields, including but not limited to: research and investigation on the temporal and spatial distribution and variation characteristics of aerosol particles, optical properties, visual obstruction phenomena, haze-fog, acid rain, ozone and precursors, photochemical pollution, etc. Developments, applications and evaluations of new remote sensing and other observation techniques are welcome.

Abstract: Since the end of 2021, Chinese Mainland had carried out normalized ozone sounding observation, but at present, only 6 stations (Beijing; Chongqing; Nanjing; Hangzhou; Qingyuan, Guangdong; Shaowu, Fujian) in China have undertaken this business and scientific experiment, and they are distributed in the middle and east of China. Up to 18th of May, Shaowu Meteorological Office has carried out 24 high-quality ozone sounding observations. The ozone sounding observation and scientific research group of Fujian Meteorological Bureau plans to compare and analyze the vertical distribution characteristics of ozone in winter and spring (2021.11-2022.5) in 2022 and study its changes.
