Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic

Severe weather (large hail, strong winds, downbursts, and tornadoes) and heavy rainfall are the most damaging phenomena around the World. Floods, damages in agriculture and building, and casualties affect yearly most of the countries of all Continents. Besides, other effects associated can increase the dramatic consequences over the affected population. According to World Meteorological Organization, these phenomena will increase in number and enlarge their capacity for destruction in the future years. Because of there, the understanding of adverse weather associated with convective thunderstorms results in a goal to improve the nowcasting habilities. Besides, this allows identifying those areas in which the scientific need to pay more attention. In this way, weather radar is the best tool for analyzing the internal processes inside thunderstorms. This issue calls for all the works regarding any research considering different radar technologies and techniques.
