Special Issue in Remote Sensing: Remote Sensing of Regional Soil Moisture
Forest hydrology investigates hydrological processes in forest-dominated ecosystems. This includes the transport and storage of water, snow and water vapour in the soil-plant-atmosphere system, and addresses the complex interaction between the forest vegetation and the abiotic system, e.g. root water uptake that is controlled by atmospheric conditions and photosynthetic activity of the plants. In order to understand and predict energy-driven processes, such as evapotranspiration or snow melt, some knowledge of the radiation and energy balances of a forest catchment is required. Forest hydrology also studies the quality of water and the mobilization and transport of chemical substances within the soil, stream or plant, and requires an understanding of forest/plant physiological and ecological processes.
While those processes and interactions can be well-studied using sophisticated instrumentations at the plot scale, remote sensing technologies are urgently required when processes are monitored, or when forested catchments are managed at larger scales.
We invite submissions of outstanding articles to this Special Issue that will advance the current knowledge of any these processes, states and interaction in forested catchments. Remote sensing techniques may range from optical, thermal, to microwave systems, as well as LIDAR and ultra-sonic instruments, and can be satellite, aircraft, drone or ground based.Prof. Dr. Karsten Schulz
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.
