Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Air-Sea Fluxes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021).
The ocean–atmosphere interface marks the boundary between the two major fluid components of the climate system. Exchange of heat, moisture, momentum, gases and solid particles between the ocean and atmosphere are of fundamental importance to better understanding and improved forecasting of the weather and climate change. Satellite remote sensing provides global data with rapid sampling at useful accuracies for many studies, and remote sensing from planes, aerial drones, and other platforms is used to study important processes and critical regions. Currently, we are in a fortunate position as remote sensing of the ocean surface and lower atmosphere has provided us with time series of consistent, accurate fields of two to three decades, and new satellites recently launched or in development are opening new research opportunities. Algorithm developments are improving the accuracy of measurements relevant to remote sensing of surface exchanges.
This idea of this Special Issue grew from the session at the ESA Living Planet Symposium 2019 on Surface Ocean—Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) research, but prospective authors are not limited to this session. The journal welcomes contributions related to all aspects of remote sensing of the ocean surface and lower atmosphere for this Special Issue.

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.
