Special Issue "3D Forest Structure Observation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2020).
Interests: forest structure; tree architecture; structural complexity; LiDAR; structure from motion; structure-function-relationships
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The observation or measurement of three-dimensional (3D) vegetation structures is improving through the recent advances in remote sensing, including approaches such as RaDAR, LiDAR or structure from motion (SFM). From the assessment of single-tree architecture to descriptions of the comprehensive 3D structure of complete forest stands, a wide scale has been covered in the latest research. In this Special Issue, contributions to the above-described fields of research are invited, particularly those addressing either drivers of structure or ecosystem functions that depend on structures. Authors introducing methodical advancements are also encouraged to submit their manuscripts. All platforms, terrestrial, UAV-based, airborne, and spaceborne are welcome.

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. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
