The Scientific Online Letters on the Atmosphere (SOLA) is an international Open Access journal published by the Meteorological Society of Japan. It aims to publish peer-reviewed short scientific papers in the atmospheric and related interdisciplinary sciences.The pronunciation of "SOLA" sounds similar to a Japanese word "sora" meaning the sky in English.
This journal is available online at J-STAGE (Open Access).
