Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Remote Sensing, especially from satellites, is a source of invaluable data that can be used to generate long-term and synoptic information for any region of the Earth. Of special interest are coastal regions that are heavily populated and affected by industry and commerce. One of such regions is the Baltic Sea, situated in Northern Europe. It is surrounded by nine countries with about 85 million inhabitants. This means that the environmental state of the Baltic Sea affects the quality of life of a large population of Europeans.

This Special Issue will host original research papers focusing on the exploitation of remote sensing from satellites and other platforms in research and environmental monitoring of the Baltic Sea. Data from different types of sensors (optical, SAR, thermal, LIDAR, etc.), as well as different platforms on which the sensors are deployed (spaceborne, airborne, UAV) can be applied. Papers can focus on, but are not limited to atmosphere, meteorology, sea ice, color of open and coastal waters, marine primary production, monitoring of natural hazards, extreme events (storm surges), pollution, sea level changes, climate related changes, coastal erosion, river plumes, surface currents, wave patterns, etc.

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 2200 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.
