This Special Issue of Geosciences aims to gather high-quality original research articles, reviews and technical notes on “Remote Sensing Application for Earthquake and Tsunami Damage Assessment”.
Remote sensing technology has started to be used dramatically in various fields in the 2000s. The ground resolution and observation frequency improvements, systematic observation system with multiple artificial satellites, and advancements of computers and network technologies have become the driving forces, not only in areas, such as solutions to global environmental problems and resource exploration in recent years, application to disaster mitigation fields, such as collection of damage information and grasp of recovery/reconstruction situation are remarkable. One of them is the advancement of damage detection technology, immediately after the occurrence of a disaster, based on observation data for earthquakes and tsunamis that occur around the world. Specifically, the effectiveness of remote sensing technology has been demonstrated in a wide range of subjects, such as wide area recognition of earthquake damage and tsunami inundation areas, quantitative evaluation of structure and geotechnical damage, time series analysis of crustal deformation, and AI (artificial intelligence) applications for disaster management.
Therefore, I would like to invite you to submit articles about your recent work with respect to the above and/or the following topics:
- Damage and loss estimation
- Multi-sensor and multi-platform observation
- Fusion of simulation and sensing technologies
- Monitoring recovery process
- Building inventory data development for damage assessment
- Utilization of remote sensing archive

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 1500 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.
