Special Issue "Value and Potential of Remote Sensing Data for Food, Energy, and Water Nexus"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 January 2020.
Interests: hydrologic remote sensing; food-energy-water nexus; hydrologic forecasting; reservoir operation
Food, Energy, and Water (FEW) nexus is emerging as a powerful approach to managing resources jointly in a sustainable manner. This requires understanding of the interactions amongst the nexus components, and development of innovative nexus-based solutions to existing problems. Several research projects are currently underway on this topic.
Remote sensing observations provide valuable insights into region-wide processes on land, atmosphere, water, energy, and food on a scale that can complement ground-based monitoring and modeling efforts to tackle FEW nexus problems. Remote sensing data have been used to study the individual components of the nexus. However, there are not many publications that focus on the value and potential of remote sensing data for understanding and managing the nexus. Innovative ways of utilizing remote sensing data may be necessary in the context of the nexus study. No Special Issue has been published on this topic. This Special Issue aims to fill this important gap.
The objective of the Special Issue is to showcase the state-of-the-art in utilizing remote sensing data for food–energy–water (FEW) nexus studies in different sectors (e.g., agriculture, water supply, energy) and different geographic regions.
Manuscripts for this issue should fulfil the following criteria:
- Research encompassing all three components of the nexus are highly encouraged; however, studies focusing on two components of the nexus are also welcome.
- Research should apply remote sensing data to address at least one of the components of the nexus.
- Innovative ways of utilizing remote sensing data in the study of the nexus is highly encouraged.

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.
