Interests: remote sensing; hydrology; geomatics
Although Earth Observation (EO) technology has improved our ability to characterize and manage ecosystems and water resources both in space and in time, there are many emerging technologies and research areas where the potential of Earth Observation has not fully exploited.
The development of hyperspectral sensors, SAR acquiring at different frequencies, LiDAR, unmanned aerial vehicles, small micro and nano satellites, virtual constellations, represents unprecedented new opportunities; is the research community developing remote sensing to its full potential?
Research papers are sought covering progress, recent advances and future trends of the following topics: satellite rainfall estimation; snow and ice hydrology; water resource management; drought monitoring and prediction; soil moisture mapping; flooding; water quality; evapotranspiration; water securing for food and climate change, landslides; safety and security of critical infrastructures; hydrogeomatics.

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 850 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.
