Special Issue in Remote Sensing: Remote Sensing of Anthropic Impact on the Environment
Water covers a large part of our planet and is essential for human life. Water woes, strictly linked with food security, climate change, and the most important challenges for humans, affect millions of people all over the world. Earth observation is an essential resource to provide crucial information for an integrated water resource management.
With this Special Issue, we intend to bring out the most recent Earth Observation technologies for monitoring oceans, wetlands, rivers, lakes, and coastal environments.
In particular, we solicit contributions describing:
- Innovative methodologies for detecting water bodies with synthetic aperture radar and/or multispectral sensors;
- Models and simulations of the electromagnetic scattering from the water surface, also in the presence of surface active materials;
- Applications of Earth observation techniques for monitoring water scarcity, water quality, and water pollution;
- Applications of remote sensing to water resource management;
- Remote sensing data assimilation within hydrological models.
Review papers are also welcome.

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.
