Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Remote sensing measurements, from unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), aircraft and satellite platforms, have increasingly become available and rapidly developing technologies to study and monitor Earth’s surface. These data are precious resources to perform extensive analysis and modeling, with the ultimate goal of supporting decision making. The spectral, spatial and temporal resolutions of remote sensors have been continuously improving, making environmental remote sensing more accurate and comprehensive than ever before. Such progress enables multiscale aspects of high-risk natural phenomena and development of multiplatform and interdisciplinary surveillance monitoring tools. This Special Issue welcomes contributions focusing on present and future perspectives in environmental remote sensing, from multispectral/hyperspectral optical and thermal sensors, and techniques for multiplatform data fusion. Novel solutions and applications toward the monitoring and characterization of environmental changes are encouraged, including, but not limited to, natural hazards from volcanic and seismic activity, mass movements and flows, swelling clays, and environmental hazards, such as contamination and pollution issues and land and soil degradation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
