Interests: technique developments of interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) and multi-temporal InSAR processing, and their applications to natural hazard monitoring and natural resource management
Dr. Chaoying Zhao
Triggered by earthquakes, rainfall, and anthropogenic activities, such as irrigation and constructions, landslide represents a widespread and problematic geo-hazard worldwide. In recent years, multiple remote sensing techniques, including synthetic aperture radar (SAR), optical, as well light detection and ranging (LiDAR) measurements from spaceborne, airborne, and ground-based platforms, have been widely applied for the monitoring of landslide processes. Current techniques include landslide classification, detection, digital elevation model reconstruction, surface deformation monitoring, and volume/mechanism inversion. In addition, landslide susceptibility mapping, hazard assessment, and risk evaluation can be further analyzed using a synergic fusion of multiple remote sensing data and other observations affecting landslides. This Special Issue aims to gather current innovative remote sensing methods, analysis and inversion techniques, and applications on landslide studies.

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.
