Special Issue "Data Restoration and Denoising of Remote Sensing Data"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2018)
Dr. Giorgio Antonino Licciardi
With very diverse available sensors and platforms, remote sensing is increasingly used in a number of applications with very high societal impact. However, the quality of the data remains a critical issue and can significantly impact the actual performances of the implemented processing algorithms. The noise corrupting the data can have very different causes, depending on the modality of acquisition (radar, optical, hyperspectral, thermal, LiDAR), the characteristics of the sensors and the used platform, from UAVs to satellites. It is, hence, usually highly desirable to reduce the noise before considering specific processing. The Special Issue, focused on noise reduction for remote sensing data, aims at gathering a variety of contributions, embracing this problem in its diversity. As a matter of fact, different natures of noise require different strategies, from physical modelling, sensor design, to advanced statistics and information processing. Contributions are welcome (but are not limited to) for the following topics:
- speckle reduction in active imaging systems (SAR, PolSAR, InSAR, LiDAR, etc.)
- Image restoration and enhancement
- atmospheric correction, sensor calibration, destriping, correction of the smile effect in optical and hypspectral imaging, shadow removal, dehazing
- advanced signal and image processing strategies for noise reduction
- inpainting for the correction of missing/corrupted data
We look forward to hearing from you and receiving your contribution.

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 1800 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.
