Atmospheric Pollution Research is an international journal designed for the publication of articles on air pollution and atmospheric processes. Papers should present novel measurement and modeling results, theory and modeling of air pollution on local, regional, or global scales. Topics covered are research on inorganic, organic, and persistent organic air pollutants, air quality monitoring, air quality management, atmospheric dispersion and transport, air-surface (soil, water, and vegetation) exchange of pollutants, dry and wet deposition, indoor air quality, exposure assessment, health effects, satellite measurements, natural emissions, atmospheric chemistry, greenhouse gases, and effects on climate change.
