The Earth surface modelling community has recognized the need for enhancing the use of Earth Observation (EO) in particular from remote sensing global observing satellites to support and improve the monitoring and understanding of surface processes as complex and intertwined components of the Earth system including land, vegetation, snow, ice, coastal and open waters. A special issue of Remote Sensing attached to a first International surface workshop (http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/iswg/meetings/2017/) will be gathering advances in observing/modelling surfaces (land, water and ice) in particular focusing on satellite-based estimation of soil moisture, snow, land surface temperature and surface water body extents.

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 monthly 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 1800 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.
