Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Geosciences aims to gather, high-quality, original research articles and technical notes on the use of geosciences, applied to geo-hydrological risk management. The Special Issue will highlight case studies, best practices, and applied research.
The use of geoscience tools is an, undeniable, added value when coping with natural disasters and their risk management. Survey devices, both close range (e.g., GNSS) and remote (e.g., UAVs, remote sensing) and mapping tools, such as G.I.S., contribute to improve the knowledge of investigated phenomena and, consequently, their risk management. Thanks to the accuracy and richness of geometric and thematic data, risk management is facilitated by and contributes to, among others, risk mitigation and the development of sustainable adaptation strategies.
Therefore, I would like to invite you to submit recent work, in the form of an article, concerning the above-mentioned topics. The use of open source approaches is highly appreciated. The preliminary submission of a short abstract outlining the aims of the research and its main results is encouraged in order to check, at an early stage, if the contribution fits the scope of the Special Issue.

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. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1200 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.
