Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Between August and November, 2016, three major earthquake occurred in Central Italy. The first event, with a Magnitde (M) of 6.1, took place on 24 August, 2016; the second (M5.9) on 26 October; and the third (M6.5) on 30 October 2016. During the last months, a large number of multi-disciplinary experts, scientists, and researchers have visited said areas in order to analyze, manage, and document the events connected to the earthquakes. Different expertise has been involved in the reconnaissance and  surveying of damaged areas, with knowledge connected to geology, seismology, geomatics, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, restoration, emergency housing, etc.

In this Special Issue, we will collect the results of the fieldwork carried out using different imaging sensors and processing strategies that were used for mapping, documenting, and analyzing the earthquakes of Central Italy in order to analyze the phenomena that occurs during the seismic swarm that is still in progress in these areas.

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. Journal of Imaging is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
