In the past few decades, high-precision GNSS has been applied to a good number of remote sensing applications, including the atmosphere, oceans or the Earth’s surface. On the one hand, the new development in multi-GNSS, including GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo and QZSS, advance the theories and algorithms of GNSS-based PNT (positioning, navigation and timing), both in post-processing and in real-time; on the other hand, a broad scope of GNSS applications for remote sensing of the solid, fluid and atmospheric Earth continue to proliferate. GNSS remote sensing, regarded as an alternative passive remote sensing technology, has been widely explored in various space-borne, airborne and ground-based experiments. Many space agencies, such as NASA, NOAA and ESA, have funded a large number of projects and missions that are based on high-precision GNSS remote sensing techniques. It results in new problems and challenges in data processing, algorithmic advancements, platform and instrument research.
This Special Issue calls for papers on the review and research of state-of-the-art high-precision GNSS methods and their relevant applications in Earth observations. It includes new models and algorithms for multi-constellation and multi-frequency data processing, bias handling and ambiguity resolution, and new methods and relevant challenging issues for retrieving troposphere and ionosphere delays, soil moisture, snow and ice depth, and other geophysical parameters of high temporal and spatial resolutions as well. This Special Issue will also welcome new developments in high-precision GNSS algorithms and applications in other branches such as geodynamics, seismology, tsunamis, etc.
We encourage, but not limit, submissions relevant to:
- Modeling and strategies in high-precision and real-time multi-GNSS data processing,
- Handling of biases of observations from different observation types, frequencies and systems for efficient integrated multi-GNSS processing,
- GNSS and other sensors (accelerometers, INS, etc.) integration for high-rate applications,
- Atmospheric sensing and GNSS meteorology, COSMIC applications
- GNSS for natural hazards prevention,
- GNSS reflectometry for ocean and land applications, soil moisture sensing
- Multi-GNSS benefits for remote sensing,
- GNSS remote sensing missions and the corresponding instrument design, receiver and antenna technique
- Challenging issues and future directions
Papers are welcomed on all of the above aspects, and more.
