Topical Collection Information

Dear colleagues,

To celebrate the launch of the new Discoveries in Remote Sensing Section, we invite authors to submit to our feature paper collection. Authors will demonstrate alignment with our action plan to promote diverse teams and authorships that are inclusive of many perspectives.

Articles may include, but are not limited to:

  1. Innovative remote sensing applications, methods, technology, theory, discussions, and ethics that promote our common goal;
  2. Transdisciplinary collaborations in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Sendai Framework;
  3. Collaborative research that includes local and/or indigenous peoples as an alternative to 'parachute' studies;
  4. Frameworks for more inclusive approaches in remote sensing research;
  5. Critical reviews on the benefits of diverse and inclusive approaches, and how this can be better incorporated into our discipline; and
  6. Education and leadership in remote sensing.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection 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 2700 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.

Chaff jamming is a widely used passive interference method. A chaff cloud diffusion model for the widespread chaff cloud was presented. The high-density chaff cloud aerodynamic model can rapidly predict the chaff elements’ time-varying spatial orientation, location, and overall spatial distribution. Basing on these pieces of information, the radar cross section (RCS) for the single chaff fibre can be obtained based on the method of moments (MoM). For high-density chaff clouds, the attenuation and shielding effects on the signal must be considered. This paper proposed a voxel splitting method in rotated coordinates, dividing the chaff cloud into rectangular cells with one side perpendicular to the direction of radar entry. The varied polarized RCS features of the chaff cloud were simulated and analysed on this foundation. By dividing the chaff cloud into dynamic voxels and considering the uneven density distribution of the chaff cloud and the signal attenuation in each segment caused by the continuous fluctuating shape, fine-grained simulations of the chaff cloud radar echoes can be performed.
