Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue will deal with the physicochemical processes involved with the generation and transport of sea-spray aerosols in the MABL (marine atmospheric boundary layer). We expect papers focusing on:

(1) generation processes through the study of S3F (sea spray source function) formulation, the whitecap fraction, and the bubble spectrum, with consideration of the influence of environmental parameters;
(2) sea-spray properties, that is, jet and film droplets as well as spume drops;
(3) air–sea fluxes with an impact on surface layer characteristics.

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.
