The space and Earth’s layers are mediums permanently exposed to influences of numerous perturbations characterized with time- and space-dependent intensity. For this reason, detection of the astrophysical and terrestrial events and their influences, as well as the development and application of various models, must be based on observation data.
The challenges related to data volume, variety and data flow are similar in astro- and geo-observations. This Special Issue aims to encourage the communication among the disciplines by identifying and grouping relevant research solutions. Its goals are to engage a broad community of researchers, both users and contributors, to make new discoveries enabled by the growth of data and technology and to continue interdisciplinary exchanges of ideas and methodologies with other fields.
We would like to invite you to submit articles addressing the data collection in astrophysics and geophysics, its acquisition, processing, and management, so that these results will be used by other scientists and that the compilation of such data sets will be useful to data producers as well. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- big data in astrophysics and geophysics
- data processing, visualization and acquisition
- line profiles data
- interstellar spectra data
- atomic and molecular data in astrophysics
- Earth observation data
- climate data records
- natural hazards and disasters
- remote sensing

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. Data is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
