Interests: monitoring and modeling of evapotranspiration and the surface energy balance using remote sensing technologies and ground-based monitoring equipment for agricultural and environmental water management; agricultural water use and water quality; tile drainage and its impact on water quality
In recent years remote sensing-based estimates of crop water use have become an invaluable and powerful tool in research, water policy making, water rights regulation, hydrological modeling and water planning and management throughout the world. This special issue on "Advances in Remote Sensing of Crop Water Use Estimation" will draw from ongoing advancements and novel developments of methodologies to further the use and quality of crop water use mapping including, for example, fusion of multi-platform data having different temporal and spatial scale, use of hyperspectral imagery to characterize e.g. vegetation or surface energy balance variables, methodologies for handling common challenges when producing maps of water consumption including cloud masking and filling, interpolations between satellite overpass dates and impacts of terrain, slope, crop type and scale.
I also invite papers describing new applications or implementations of crop water use maps, for example in water planning or decision making, hydrological models, agricultural and environmental water use estimates, life cycle analysis applications and similar.

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.
