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, from Earth’s surface up to the turbopause, including the troposphere, stratosphere, and mesosphere.
Topics include gases, aerosols, clouds, precipitation, dynamics, radiation and their role in the climate and the Earth system. Research activities include laboratory studies, field measurements, remote sensing, modelling and data analysis, and machine learning (for details see journal subject areas).
In the coming days and weeks, readers of our journals will experience a facelift of our websites. Read more about the background.
We are sad to announce that the Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics community has lost a highly valued member: Prof Astrid Kiendler-Scharr passed away in February 2023. Please read our obituary.
To show our support for Ukraine, all fees for papers from authors (first or corresponding authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception will be if the corresponding author or first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.
In accordance with current European restrictions, Copernicus Publications does not step into business relations with and issue APC-invoices (articles processing charges) to Russian and Belarusian institutions. The peer-review process and scientific exchange of our journals including preprint posting is not affected. However, these restrictions require that the first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) has an affiliation and invoice address outside Russia or Belarus.
