Special Issue "Advances in Ground Deformation Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: InSAR; geosciences; geohazards; remote sensing
We would like to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue on advances in ground deformation monitoring. Much progress has been made in the development of techniques for the detection and measurement of all kinds of ground motion from remote platforms and sensors, to complement those made using conventional ground-based techniques.
Spaceborne InSAR is widely used for the precise detection, measurement and monitoring of ground deformation, and it is a very efficient and cost-effective method of doing so over areas of large spatial extent, at reasonably high temporal frequency, and without the need for ground-based instrumentation. Differential InSAR is now used for monitoring volcanic activity, earthquake deformation, effects of carbon sequestration, mining, engineering and hydrology-related subsidence and more. Recent advances in methods in data processing and sensor technology have enabled great improvements in measurement reliability and precision, through repeated observations over long time frames and at high resolutions.
This issue is intended for a wide and multidisciplinary audience and presents some of the most recent advances and novel approaches in the detection, measurement and monitoring of ground deformation.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
