Theoretical and Applied Climatology offers the latest and most significant developments from studies around the world in climate, atmosphere and meteorology. Along with its sister journal Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics, they are continuations of Archives for Meteorology, Geophysics and Bioclimatology, Series A and B. These journals were originally founded in 1949 by W. Moerikhofer, of Davos, and F. Steinhauser, of Vienna.

Theoretical and Applied Climatology covers climate modeling, climatic changes and climate forecasting, micro- to mesoclimate, applied meteorology as in agro- and forestmeteorology, biometeorology, building meteorology and atmospheric radiation problems as they relate to the biosphere; effects of anthropogenic and natural aerosols or gaseous trace constituents; hardware and software elements of meteorological measurements, including techniques of remote sensing, among other topics of current interest.

There are no page charges for colour figures in this journal.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
