The subject matter of papers published in Atmospheric Environment covers all aspects of the interaction of people and ecosystems with their atmospheric environment. This includes scientific, administrative, economic and political aspects of these interactions. The main aim of Atmospheric Environment is to provide a scientific understanding of the consequences of natural and human-induced perturbations on the earth's atmosphere. Areas covered include but are not limited to air pollution research and its applications, air quality and its effects, dispersion and transport, deposition, biospheric-atmospheric exchange, global atmospheric chemistry, radiation and climate. Novel results based on experiments, theory and modelling of the atmosphere, extending from local to global scales, are included. Atmospheric Environment publishes research and review papers, special issues and other invited and contributed columns: New Directions: Current Issues in Atmospheric Science. New Directions has recently been introduced to Atmospheric Environment as an invited or contributed column reporting on late-breaking, controversial, or speculative issues in all aspects of the atmospheric sciences. The articles are intended to have a broad appeal to the readership of the journal, and to provide a focus and forum for further discussion. They are written in a popular style, not as scientific papers, but are nevertheless authored by experts in their field. Columns are submitted and processed by electronic mail to facilitate a rapid turn-around of articles. Columns are refereed by a panel of members from the journal's editorial board to speed the review process. The columns are featured in the journal using grey-edged paper for the article, and a prominent grey-edge display box on the back page at the head of the issue index. Published New Directions articles have been subsequently featured in Elsevier Environment News - a widely circulated free publication, and on the Elsevier Science Channel World Wide Web site. Advance notice of publication of New Directions articles is incorporated in to the 'Contents Direct' e-mail service. Plans for further distribution of New Direction articles, notably by electronic media, are currently being advanced. There are no page charges, and authors of full-length (1000 word) articles are entitled to 25 free reprints. Further copies may also be purchased.

Fast Track Papers: A route for rapid publication of manuscripts that are especially urgent. Short Communications and Technical Notes: Papers that cover topics which may be simpler in structure or of more limited interest, sometimes reporting unusual observations. Millennial Review Papers: Authoritative reviews in the general field of air pollution. Atmospheric Environment International: A series of special issues placing air pollution research in a regional context. The following regions will be covered: Africa and Middle East, Asia and Japan, Australia and New Zealand, Central and South America, Eastern Europe, North America, Western Europe.
