Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are celebrating a 40-year legacy of land observations in the solar spectral range at moderate-to-coarse spatial resolutions starting back in the 70s with Landsat; the 80s with the advance very high resolution radiometer (NOAA/AVHRR); and continuing with the moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (NASA/MODIS), the visible infrared imaging radiometer suite (Raytheon/VIIRS), and, for example, the ESA Copernicus suites.

In this Special Issue, we will compile state-of-the-art research that addresses multi-temporal and/or multi-sensor studies focusing on the solar spectral range, and working on the inter-consistency of these sensors. Please see the keywords to select the area of your subscription. Review contributions 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.
