Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Atmospheric Aerosols over Asia: Methods and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Interests: atmospheric remote sensing; air quality; aerosols; air quality and human health; aerosol classification; aerosol retrievals; remote sensing of land and atmospheric parameters; atmospheric correction; satellite-based PM estimation
Interests: remote sensing of environmental change; aerosol remote sensing; urban climate; air pollution; climate change; tropical forest ecology
Asia is the most populated region in the world, with vast and still growing urban and industrial complexes and vehicle usage, as well as distinct climatic conditions. Due to all these factors, Asia produces a large number of toxic pollutants that affect human health, climate change, the Earth’s radiation budget, air quality, and atmospheric visibility. Published research demonstrates that Asia contributes most to world air pollution, due to the significant increase in aerosol pollutants from both anthropogenic and natural sources. Ground-based and satellite-based remote sensing technologies play an important role in the understanding of aerosol sources and types, aerosol radiative forcing, aerosol retrievals, the formation of secondary aerosols, and estimation of particulate matter.
This SI welcomes all those manuscripts presenting advances in remote sensing techniques, new methodologies, and applications with new scientific contributions for estimation of particulate matter, aerosol type classification, aerosol optical depth retrievals, aerosol radiative forcing, and related topics.

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 2400 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.
