Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Atmospheric Properties"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Atmospheric aerosols are known to directly or indirectly influence global and regional climate by absorbing or scattering solar radiation and thus influencing Earth’s radiation budget, as well as by modifying the processes in the clouds. Improved knowledge on aerosol particle composition and aging and their corresponding optical properties is paramount for understanding their role in regional climate change and weather phenomena. Optical properties of aerosols depend on their micro-physical properties and chemical composition, which also influence their mixing and aging characteristics. Aerosol hygroscopicity, beside affecting their optical properties, also allows them to act as condensation nuclei in clouds, thus indirectly modifying cloud processes.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide new answers regarding atmospheric properties which may be affected by or can be investigated using atmospheric aerosols and their correlation to environmental problems such as global warming and propagation of pollutants using remote sensing techniques as primary investigation tools. The proposed topics include the investigation of aerosol optical and micro-physical properties, the formation of secondary aerosols the relationship between aerosols and water vapor, as well the investigation of atmospheric structures.Prof. Samo Stanič
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. Remote Sensing 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.
