Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The infrared spectral range approximately extends from 1 µm to 1 mm. It is a broad spectrum with variable characteristics that allows one to conduct different analyses on various subjects.

Numerous satellite and airborne missions are equipped with spectral bands in the infrared spectrum and new constellations of thermal satellites are being built. These new sensors represent a shift in thermal remote sensing, as new applications emerge with increasing revisit times and spatial resolution. Innovative image processing techniques are appearing to account for the changing image parameters.

Traditional applications that use thermal infrared vary from agriculture to security. However, thermal remote sensing can also be used to conduct analyses of climate change effects on the Earth’s surface. Land Surface Temperature changes, vegetation health, and other aspects can be observed using thermal spectral bands. Additionally, extreme events, such as heat waves and drought, can be monitored from space on a much more detailed scale than before. An increase in revisit time even allows for analyses of diurnal heat cycles and man-made processes, such as gas flaring.

We invite authors to publish novel processing ideas and innovative applications in the Special Issue “Infrared-Image Processing for Climate Change Monitoring from Space”

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Journal of Imaging 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 1600 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.
