Special Issue Information
Urbanization is one of the most powerful and visible anthropogenic force on the earth (Philip R. Christensen., etc.2003). Rapid urbanization procession exerts great influences on the regional and global environment, so that monitoring spatiotemporal dynamics of urban environment will become increasingly important. Satellite and airborne sensors can provide multi-temporal and multi-spatial information for urban environmental monitoring. Accordingly, the special issue of 'Sensors for Urban Environmental Monitoring' encourages papers on the use of remotely sensed data for key urban environmental quantities measurement, urban growth simulation, urban ecosystem structure and function assessment.
