MDPI's Atmosphere Journal Launches Special Issue on Sustainable Technologies for Climate Change

MDPI's Atmosphere journal has launched a Special Issue on "Sustainable Technologies in Landscape and Urban Planning Response to Climate Change." The journal is inviting researchers to submit manuscripts on innovative technologies addressing climate change issues in cities by the deadline of April 30, 2024.

Why this matters: Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and finding sustainable solutions to mitigate its effects is crucial for the health and well-being of urban populations. By encouraging research and innovation in this area, this Special Issue has the potential to contribute to meaningful policy changes and improvements in air quality.

The Special Issue welcomes original research articles, review articles, and short communications on sustainable technologies in landscape and urban planning that address climate change issues in cities. The journal encourages well-designed studies and high-quality datasets from all fields of ecology.

Urban air pollution is a leading environmental risk for human health, with 4.2 million annual premature deaths attributed to ambient air pollution, according to the World Health Organization. In September 2021, the WHO updated its Air Quality Guidelines, reflecting the fact that even exposure to lower levels of air pollutants can affect human health.

The Special Issue is seeking papers on the modeling of physicochemical processes, improved understanding of air quality dispersion, source apportionment, quantification of the impacts of air pollution control policies, or co-benefits of Net Zero policies on air pollution levels at various scales, ranging from street canyon to neighborhood and city scales.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to the website. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open-access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Atmosphere is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by MDPI. The journal provides an advanced forum for studies on all aspects of ecology and is expected to quickly grow in popularity. Dr. Jian Zhong is serving as the Guest Editor for this Special Issue.

The Special Issue on "Sustainable Technologies in Landscape and Urban Planning Response to Climate Change" presents an important opportunity for researchers to showcase innovative solutions to pressing climate change challenges in urban environments. With the April 30, 2024 deadline approaching, the journal looks forward to receiving high-quality submissions that can advance understanding and drive progress in this critical field.
