Recent studies have shown very strong coupling between the ocean and atmosphere on the oceanic and atmospheric mesoscale (approximately 10 to 100 km length scales). The impacts of these scales on ocean processes, weather, and climate have become a topic of wide interest. Recent observations qualitatively confirm some model expectations, but also demonstrate large departures between models and satellite observations. Interactions between winds and currents also influence the generation of ocean eddies (reducing the ocean’s eddy kinetic energy) and influence the latitudinal envelope of western boundary current extensions that moves across the mid-latitude oceans. These currents supply heat to storms, as well as heat and moisture to countries down wind of these currents. The air–sea exchange and storage of gases is also modified by several of these processes, as is the carbon cycle through changes in primary productivity. Papers on all aspects of these interactions and possible satellite connections between observations and modeling 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 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. 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 2700 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.
