Interests: climatology of severe weather phenomena (tropical cyclones, thunderstorms and lightning); climate prediction; satellite remote sensing for climate monitoring
As climate changes have been of great concern worldwide for years, addressing these global climate challenges is the most significant task for humanity; thus, Group on Earth Observations (GEO) has launched initiatives across multiple societal benefit areas (agriculture, biodiversity, climate, disasters, ecosystems, energy, health, water, and weather), such as the Global Forest Observations Initiative, the GEO Carbon and GHG Initiative, the GEO Biodiversity Observation Network, the GEO Blue Planet, and so on. Related topics have been addressed and deliberated throughout the world. This Special Issue aims to bring up discussion concerning innovative techniques/approaches based on remote sensing data, and to nurture the knowledge on the acquisition of Earth observations and its applications in the contemporary practice of sustainable development. Research scientists and other subject matter experts are encouraged to submit challenging papers that describe advances in the related topics:
- Industry and Policy
