Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollution, solar radiation and regional climate interact with each other and should be studied together. Anthropogenic and biogenic activities, e.g., the emissions of chemical compounds, anthropogenic and biogenic volatile organic compounds (AVOCs, BVOCs), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2), influence the physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere. These chemical compounds take part in chemical and photochemical reactions/pollution and produce new compounds in gases, liquids and particles, e.g., ozone, particulate matter (PM), secondary organic aerosol (SOA). BVOC emissions from vegetation play important roles in ozone and aerosol formation, and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) is a key driving factor in BVOC emissions. During the physical, chemical and biological processes, solar UV radiation and visible radiation are absorbed and used. This Special Issue aims to provide a platform to share space- and ground-based observations and modeling in understanding the above issues and their interactions, including ozone chemistry and photochemistry, associated with AVOCs and BVOCs, NOx, SO2, particulate matter and solar radiation (UV, visible and global solar radiation). Studies related to the interactions and their potential effects on atmospheric constituents, solar radiation, air movements and regional climate are encouraged.

The scope of the Special Issue focuses on emissions of gases (polluted and non-polluted) and particles, chemical and photochemical formation of ozone and particulate matter (e.g., secondary organic aerosols), solar radiation (UV, visible/PAR and global solar radiation) and the processes and mechanisms in chemical constituents, solar radiation, the atmosphere and the biosphere, including the interactions in regional air pollution and climate change.

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 2300 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.
