Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Many coastal regions face continuing pressure from surging population growth, natural resource extraction, natural and technological hazards, climate change and attendant sea-level rise. These issues beckon advances and applications of remote sensing in the coastal environment for resources inventorying and monitoring, planning for sustainable development, and coastal hazards assessment. Dynamic coastal environments pose challenges and opportunities to remote sensing science, particularly the capture and characterization of highly dynamic coastal processes, complex estuarine and subaqueous habitats, and spectral characteristics of water and its suspended and solute contents. This special issue invites scholarly papers that advance the science of remote sensing for coastal environments through innovative algorithm development and novel applications.

Coastal-related topics especially welcome include:

Technical and algorithmic advances

  • coastal habitat mapping (wetlands, benthic, and estuarine habitats)
  • thermal and bio-optical characteristics of coastal waters
  • coastal modeling and RS/GIS integration
  • Airborne and terrestrial LiDAR
  • change detection
  • multi-sensor integration and fusion for coastal applications

Applied topics

  • coastal hazards
  • sea-level rise
  • shoreline erosion
  • population growth
  • coastal storms, hurricanes, and storm surges
  • wetlands
  • coastal habitats and resource mapping
