We would like to draw your attention to preparing and submitting an original contribution on the following topic: “Dust in the Environment”. This Special Issue we are preparing will bring together scientific contributions dedicated to current studies on natural or urban/industrial dust particles, aerosol effects, dust storms, etc., from the modelling/experimental/laboratory/monitoring viewpoints. The goal is that of updating the state-of-the-art on the interaction between dust and the environment (also intended as cities), particularly in cases of extreme events like dust storms, hurricanes, and volcanic eruptions, with an eye on sustainable development and future generations. The Special Issue will consider and update the existing literature by integrating different investigation approaches (from modelling to observation). Please do not hesitate to contact us for any additional information on this Special Issue. Many thanks in advance, and best regards.
Dr. Domenico M. Doronzo
