Aims and Scope

Atmospheric Science Letters (ASL2) is an electronic journal and is available online at http://wileyonlinelibrary.com/journal/asl2 Its aim is to provide a fully peer reviewed publication route for new shorter contributions in the field of atmospheric and closely related sciences. Through its ability to publish shorter contributions more rapidly than conventional journals, ASL2 offers a framework that promotes new understanding and creates scientific debate – providing a platform for discussing scientific issues and techniques.

We encourage the presentation of multi-disciplinary work and contributions that utilize ideas and techniques from parallel areas. We particularly welcome contributions that maximize the visualization capabilities offered by a purely online journal. ASL2 welcomes papers in the fields of:

  • Dynamical meteorology
  • Ocean–atmosphere systems
  • Climate change, variability and impacts
  • New or improved observations from instrumentation
  • Hydrometeorology
  • Numerical weather prediction
  • Data assimilation
  • Physical processes of the atmosphere
  • Land surface–atmosphere systems
