Journal scope

Advances in Atmospheric Sciences, launched in 1984, aims to rapidly publish the latest achievements and developments on the dynamics, physics and chemistry of the Earth’s atmosphere and ocean.  It also aims to rapidly publish potentially high influential papers on the atmospheres of other planets and on earth system dynamics in which the atmosphere and/or ocean are involved. 

Papers cover the subject areas including but not limited to atmospheric and oceanic theories, modelling and observations; weather and general circulation systems, numerical weather prediction, climate dynamics; satellite meteorology, remote sensing, air chemistry and the boundary layer, clouds and precipitation; earth system dynamics, particularly on interactions of the atmosphere and ocean with the biosphere, the cryosphere, and the anthroposphere. The journal encourages studies seeking universal and generalized laws from local and specific phenomena.
