All participants of ECAS2020 are welcome to submit the extended work to the Atmosphere Special Issue "Selected Papers from the Third International Electronic Conference on Atmospheric Sciences".

Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Atmospheric Sciences. With this meeting, we hope to build on the first two versions of the conference. We concede that sharing our work face-to-face with our colleagues is preferred, however, the COVID-19 crisis forced many conferences to postpone or cancel their meetings. Technology is continuously improving the virtual experience and we hope to take advantage of the latest developments in order to create a quality online meeting.

For the third electronic conference in atmospheric sciences, the range of topics will remain more general, but we would be open to future meetings or subject areas having a thematic topic of importance. During the last few decades, great strides have been made in all general areas of atmospheric science. We have seen the proliferation of remote sensing technologies and techniques for their use in research and forecasting. We have seen advances in the understanding of synoptic and dynamic meteorology which have improved weather forecasting. Advances in the capabilities of atmospheric modelling as well as increases in computing power have enhanced our understanding of atmospheric behaviors on all time and space scales. Additionally, there have been discoveries related to the behavior of smaller-scale systems, especially those that interact with human activity, health, and economics. These have inspired techniques for warning people that these events could affect them. The increased understanding of interannual and interdecadal variability in climate has also led to the development of long-range forecasting and projection. In conclusion, this conference will be organized around the following general and related themes which correspond to the Atmosphere journal.

  • Aerosols
  • Air Quality
  • Air Quality and Human Health
  • Climatology
  • Meteorology
  • Biometeorology
  • Atmospheric Techniques, Instrumentation, and Modelling
  • Biosphere / Hydrosphere / Land-Atmosphere Interactions
  • Upper Atmosphere
  • Planetary Atmospheres.

Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference in MDPI’s online journal, Atmosphere Special Issue "Selected Papers from the Third International Electronic Conference on Atmospheric Sciences" after peer review and enjoy 20% discount on processing fees.

Manuscript prepared in MS Word must be converted into a single file before submission. Please do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame which can superimpose the text and make the layout very difficult.

Manuscript Preparation
  • Paper Format: A4 paper format, the printing area is 17.5 cm x 26.2 cm. The margins should be 1.75 cm on each side of the paper (top, bottom, left, and right sides).
  • Formatting / Style: Papers should be prepared following the style of ECAS 2017 template. The full titles and the cited papers must be given. Reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ], and placed before the punctuation; for example [4] or [1-3], and all the references should be listed separately and as the last section at the end of the manuscript.
  • Authors List and Affiliation Format: Authors' full first and last names must be given. Abbreviated middle name can be added. For papers written by various contributors a corresponding author must be designated. The PubMed/MEDLINE format is used for affiliations: complete street address information including city, zip code, state/province, country, and email address should be added. All authors who contributed significantly to the manuscript (including writing a section) should be listed on the first page of the manuscript, below the title of the article. Other parties, who provided only minor contributions, should be listed under Acknowledgments only. A minor contribution might be a discussion with the author, reading through the draft of the manuscript, or performing English corrections.
  • Figures, Schemes and Tables: Authors are encouraged to prepare figures and schemes in color. Full color graphics will be published free of charge. Figure and schemes must be numbered (Figure 1, Scheme I, Figure 2, Scheme II, etc.) and a explanatory title must be added. Tables should be inserted into the main text, and numbers and titles for all tables supplied. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Please supply legends for all figures, schemes and tables. The legends should be prepared as a separate paragraph of the main text and placed in the main text before a table, a figure or a scheme.
