The application of remote sensing data has long been recognized as an invaluable source of information in areas covered by land ice. These areas are often located in remote and hostile environments were remote sensing is the sole source of high-temporal/spatial data.
This Special Issue of Geosciences aims at gathering high-quality original research articles, reviews, and technical notes on the use of remote sensing studies for land ice. We invite contributions from a wide spectrum of remote sensing techniques that are presently available, e.g., optical, multi/hyper-spectral imagery, altimetry, and gravimetry. Both the application of remote sensing datasets to monitor land ice and studies applying in situ data to provide ground truth of remote sensing data are encouraged.
I also encourage you to send me a short abstract outlining the purpose of the research and the principal results obtained, in order to verify (at an early stage) if the contribution you intend to submit fits with the objectives of this Special Issue.Dr. Sebastian Bjerregaard Simonsen
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. 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 1000 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.
