Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Monitoring the change in the atmospheric composition at varying spatial and temporal scales using satellite retrievals is one of the keys to promoting our understanding of the Earth–Atmosphere system. The targeted species are short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) and greenhouse gases. Satellite data have been serving as important observational information to understand satellite behavior in the atmosphere, through the capturing of their emissions status and atmospheric fates. It is vitally important to understand the changes of the atmospheric composition over long- and short-term time periods. Based on the accumulation of the satellite dataset, a trend analysis of atmospheric composition can provide us with an idea of their variations over long-term periods. Additionally, satellite measurements can also help us to understand the short-term dramatic variations in atmospheric composition during specific events such as the economic recession and the restrictions of human activities during COVID-19.

This Special Issue is calling for scientific papers which contribute to understanding of the variations of atmospheric composition based on the satellite retrievals both for long- and short-term time periods. Contributions on the improvements on retrieval algorithms toward the precise monitoring of the atmospheric composition are also welcomed.

The Special Issue “Satellite Remote Sensing of Atmospheric Composition and Monitoring Spatiotemporal Variabilities” is jointly organized between “Remote Sensing” and “Climate” journals. Contributors are required to check the website below and follow the specific instructions for authors:

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. Climate 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 1400 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.
