With consideration of a person’s activity patterns, exposure assessment is crucial for the accurate estimation of the effects of exposure to air pollutants on human health. Although there has been much attention directed toward the health impacts of exposures to air pollutants, there are unfortunately many difficulties associated with collecting high-resolution air pollution data as well as large population-based environmental epidemiological data.
Inexpensive sensors installed in real-time remote sensing monitors for many air pollutants have been introduced for use in outdoor as well as indoor environments. Such devices can provide pollutant distribution patterns at high temporal and spatial resolution, which is a substantial improvement in establishing a pollution monitoring platform as well as conducting environmental epidemiological studies, as compared to traditional approaches comprising a relatively small number of ground-fixed national air monitoring stations or mobile sampling techniques.
In this Special Issue, we will include the research outcomes of environmental epidemiology/health studies as well as exposure assessment studies using remote sensing technologies of 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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
