Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Climate Change might be the most pressing issue of our time and it is abundantly clear that ‘climate’ is a complex system rooted in human–environment dynamics with the current state of our atmosphere being reflected through nonlinear interactions of events from the past and present. Evidence for the impact of human activity on our atmosphere is well documented by scholars from various sub-disciplines of science and social science.  It should in fact be obvious that fluid dynamics is at the core of climate science and fluid dynamists have much to say about the issue of climate change. However, this connection has not been made widely enough in the literature. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to fill this gap by bringing together a wide range of perspectives on the fluid dynamics of climate change.

Having said that, since climate change is not the purview of any one discipline, this Special Issue is also a call for manuscripts covering different aspects of climate change-based flow dynamics, beyond just scientific perspectives. Environmental Scientists, Meteorologists, Mathematicians, Physicists, Engineers and even Social Scientists are welcome to submit papers to this Special Issue and we welcome theoretical, experimental, field data-driven, or even historical articles, provided they are relevant, novel, and abide by the journal requirements. All papers will undergo rigorous peer-review.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Fluids 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 1800 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.
