Each manuscript should include the following components:
Author’s name and affiliation of each author, E-mail address of the corresponding author are required. These items should be written on the title page.
A concise (≦200 words) abstract is required at the beginning of each article. Authors should summarize the important conclusions and methods in the abstract. References should be omitted in the abstract.
At least three keywords are needed.
The text should be divided into sections, each with a separate heading and numbered consecutively. The section/subsection headings should be typed on a separate line [e.g. 1. Introduction, a. Data, 1) FLASH DENSITY, and (i) Experiment]
Omit the word “number” from grant or contract acknowledgements.
Auxiliary analyses or tables whose details are subordinate to the main theme of the paper should normally appear in an appendix. Each appendix should have a title.
References should be arranged alphabetically without numbering. The text citation should consist of the author’s name and year of publication, [e.g. “according to Rossby (1945),” or “as shown by an earlier study (Rossby 1945)”]. When there are two or more papers by the same author in the same year, the distinguishing suffix (a, b, etc.) should be added.
1) FOR A JOURNAL ARTICLE
Reference must consist of last name and initials of author(s), year of publication of journal, title of paper, title of journal ( italicized or underlined and abbreviated), volume of journal (boldface), number of issue (only if required for identification), and first and last page numbers of the paper. For example:
Charney, J.G., and A. Eliassen, 1964: On the growth of the hurricane depression. J. Atmos. Sci., 21, 68-75.
2) FOR A BOOK
Reference must consist of last name and initials of author(s), year of publication of book, title of book (italicized or underlined), publisher’s name, and total pages. For example:
Wallace, J.M., and P.V. Hobbs, 1977: Atmospheric Science: An Introductory Survey. Academic Press, 350 pp.
3) FOR A CHAPTER IN A BOOK
For a book or monograph that is a collection of papers written by independent authors, the reference must be made to the authors of a particular chapter and consist of last name and initials of author(s), year of publication of book, title of the chapter, title of book (italicized or underlined), name of editor(s), publisher’s name, and inclusive pages for the chapter. For example:
Anthes, R.A., 1986: The general question of predictability. Mesoscale Meteorology and Forecasting, P.S. Ray, Ed. Amer. Meteor. Soc., 636-656.
For a chapter in a book that is part of a monograph series, the format is similar but includes the volume and number of the monograph. For example:
Arakawa, A., 1993: Closure assumption in the cumulus parameterization problem. The representation of Cumulus Convection in Numerical Models, Meteor. Monogr., No.46, Amer. Meteor. Soc., 1-16.
4) CONFERENCE PREPRINT OR PROCEEDING
References must consist of last name and initials of author(s); year of publication; title of paper; indication of the publication as a preprints, proceedings, or extended abstracts volume; name of conference volume (italicized or underlined); city and state where conference was held; conference sponsor’s name; and pages of the paper. For example:
Kalnay, E., and Z. Toth,1994: Removing growing errors in the analysis cycle. Preprints, 10th Conf. on Numerical Weather Prediction, Portland, OR, Amer. Meteor. Soc., 212-215.
Each figure must be provided with an adequate caption; all captions should be single-spaced directly on the figures used for the reviewer copies.
9.Illustrations and tables
Each illustration and table must be cited specifically in the text and in numerical order. The figure number will be typeset and should not be part of the illustration. All illustrations should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and a higher resolution if possible. All tables should have a double-spaced caption, and table text and headers also should be double spaced. Illustrations and tables should be placed within the body of the manuscript.
