Landscapes are the result of complex interactions between complex surface processes. The distribution of landmasses is modified by geological factors (such as tectonic activity or volcanism) or eustatic changes. Resulting topography is in turn shaped by erosional processes which are themselves controlled by climate. During the last decades, remote sensing has been extensively used in geomorphology due to its ability to provide critical informations regarding the distribution of landforms and their association with meaningful ground features (e.g., faults, drainage networks) or climatic variables (e.g., precipitations). The application of remote sensing to geomorphology is also closely related to the use of computational methods and analytical tools which allows to extract and interpret these parameters.
The aim of this special issue is to cover remote sensed analyses of landscapes and their application to the understanding of surface processes. We are mainly interested in research dealing with the interactions between tectonic, erosion and climate. Innovative papers on data processing or new computational methods for extracting geologic or geomorphic features are also greatly encouraged.

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.
