Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advancing our understanding and quantification of global/regional climate change as well as improving weather prediction depend critically on the information provided through remote sensing. These advances can only be achieved with the continuation/enhancement of existing successful remote sensing programs, plus the addition of promising new remote sensing approaches. Optical remote sensing of the atmosphere, via satellites, airborne platforms and ground-based systems, is and will continue to be of key importance in these efforts. This special issue invites contributions on research projects/programs and instruments for optical remote sensing of the atmosphere which now provide, or offer the promise of providing, significant results in support of investigations of global/regional climate change. Submissions addressing both active and passive remote sensing approaches are encouraged. Paper topics such as sensing atmospheric trace gases, aerosols, clouds, winds and temperature are all of interest. While emphasis will be placed on contributions presenting new results, novel sensing approaches, innovative research ideas and the like, review and status-of-the-field contributions are also welcomed.

Submission

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. 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 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
