Aims and scope

Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP) is a not-for-profit international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and public discussion of studies investigating Earth's atmosphere and the underlying chemical and physical processes.

ACP publishes studies with important implications for our understanding of the state and behaviour of the atmosphere and climate, including the troposphere, stratosphere, and mesosphere (including studies that span the mesosphere and lower thermosphere).

Topics include gases, aerosols, clouds, precipitation, dynamics, radiation and their role in the Earth's climate system. Research activities include laboratory studies, field measurements, remote sensing, modelling and data analysis, and machine learning (for details see journal subject areas).

Articles with a local focus must clearly explain how the results extend and compare with current knowledge. Authors should pay particular attention to whether their paper would fit better in other journals published by Copernicus Publications, such as Atmospheric Measurement Techniques or Geoscientific Model Development. The manuscript types considered for peer-reviewed publication are research articles, review articles, technical notes, letters, measurement reports, opinions, and commentaries/replies.
