Aims and Scope


Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Letters (AOSL) is an international journal for the publication of original communications-length articles related to all aspects of the atmospheric sciences, oceanography, and closely related sciences. Limited manuscript size expedites the review and publication process. AOSL also includes a Progress and Views section, featuring invited research highlights, and project reports. The journal provides a rigorous peer-review process and rapid publication speeds (final decision within a maximum of three months; minimum turnaround of two weeks).


The editorial board welcomes the submissions of multi-disciplinary work and contributions that utilize ideas and techniques from parallel areas.
