Remote Sensing Letter
A section of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292).
Aims and Scopes
The Remote Sensing Letter Section publishes short communications and perspectives (maximum length 10 pages) on the theory, science, and technology of remote sensing and novel applications of remotely sensed data. The section focuses on rapid dissemination of novel methods, algorithms, and applications in remote sensing science, from sensor design, algorithm development, and calibration/validation, to applications in geosciences, atmospheric sciences, oceanography, environmental sciences, ecology, and civil engineering, etc. Research studies on a variety of sensors including active, passive, UAV-based, and in situ spectroscopy are encouraged. The Letter Section encourages short manuscripts with innovative findings that might have an immediate impact on the field. It also encourages preliminary high impact results from contemporary environmental issues such as natural and anthropogenic disasters and their associated environmental or societal impact.
The scope of the Letter Section is the same as the primary journal, Remote Sensing. The subjects considered for publication include a broad range of topics (listed below):
- Algorithm development and calibration/validation;
- Sensor cross-calibration studies;
- Environmental modeling;
- Ecosystem monitoring and assessment;
- Inland and coastal water resources;
- Atmospheric science;
- Land use land cover changes;
- Wetland and coastal dynamics;
- Sensing technology demonstration;
- New sensors/platforms applications;
- Cyberinfrastructure and computational advances;
- Sensing via crowdsourcing and data analytics;
- Climate change studies;
- Rapid observational studies;
- Remote sensing of conflict areas and geopolitics;
- Environmental impact assessment from natural, anthropogenic, and public health disasters.
Special Issue proposals are also encouraged for the Letter Section. Proposals by a team of Guest Editors are subject to review to determine their suitability for the Letter Section.
Following special issues within this section are currently open for submissions:
- Remote Sensing of Water Cycle: Recent Developments and New Insights (Deadline: 31 March 2022)
- Advances in Synthetic Aperture Radar Remote Sensing (Deadline: 31 May 2022)
