Approximately 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas today, and this proportion is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. There is a great need to advance our scientific understanding of air pollution in urban areas to improve air quality and protect public health. This Special Issue invites submissions of novel and original papers and reviews on urban air pollution, including but not limited to the following topics:
- Quantification of pollutant emissions at urban scales
- In situ and satellite-based observations of trace gases and particulates
- Chemical transformations
- Air pollution meteorology
- Air quality modeling
- Pollution transport between urban and regional scales
- Pollution control measures and policies
