Environmental sensing has been a highly compelling application driver for wireless sensor networks since the formation of the field. The lack of continuous energy supplies, dynamic radio environments and significant scientific interest for measurements derived from large-scale, high temporal and spatial resolution deployments, has made this a rich area of research. Despite the progress in the field over the past decade however, many research challenges still remain unsolved ranging from reliable network protocols, adaptive energy management and energy harvesting, through to improved methods for sensor calibration, anomaly detection and multimedia networks. This special issue will present recent research in a range of these areas, and help bring to light some of the key research issues which remain to be solved in order to make wide-spread environmental sensing a reality.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
