Ocean Remote Sensing

A section of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292).

Section Information


Section Ocean Remote Sensing is one of thirteen Sections in MDPI’s Remote Sensing journal (ISSN 2072-4292). The main aim of the Section Ocean Remote Sensing is to introduce new observational, analytical, computational and modeling methods and understandings in marine sciences. This Section publishes original articles, letters, reviews, and communications with regard to remote sensing oceanography and related fields.
