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

Dear Colleagues,

As is now known Atmospheric trace constituents, like aerosol and trace gases, play a key role in a variety of Earth’s processes that impact directly (e.g. environment, health) or indirectly (e.g. climate) in our lives.

Because of the growing concerns over climate change and air pollution, in the last few years aerosol research has become a hot topic. In addition, the effect of the air pollution and aerosol are recognized cause of increased disease incidence in exposed population.

Aim of this Special Issue is to highlight novel research in the field of the air pollution showing new field measurements, data analysis and modeling on atmospheric aerosols.

Authors are encouraged to submit papers on new technologies for aerosol measurements, carried out in different observation platforms (e.g. Observatories, airborne/ground based laboratories), and modeling that improve agreement between model simulations and field observations. Results obtained in long time series or in field campaigns are also welcome, in order to present studies for health and regulatory assessments.
