Thermal infrared remote-sensing is a unique way to obtain an accurate surface temperature that is one of the most important physical environmental variables monitored by earth-observing remote-sensing systems. Global changes in temperature endanger the environment; they must be monitored and consequently affect well-being. Surface temperature is a key parameter that must be monitored.
This Special Issue seeks contributions ranging from review papers to basic research. The focus will be on LST (Land Surface Temperature) rather than on SST (Sea Surface Temperature), where the physical processes involved are quite different. The scopes of this Special Issue are to present the latest studies on the retrieval of LST with a focus on the underlying physics and image processing techniques and on applications that use the LST to obtain a deeper understanding of land surface temperatures and dynamics, urban heat island effects, forest fires, volcanic eruption precursors, geothermal systems, and soil-moisture variability.

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.
