Topical Collection in Remote Sensing: Feature Papers of Engineering Remote Sensing
In the past two decades, high-precision GPS has been applied to support numerous applications in geosciences. Currently, there are two fully operational Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), and two more are in the implementation stage. The new Galileo and BDS systems already provide usable signals, and both GPS and GLONASS are currently undergoing significant modernization, which adds more capacity, more signals, better accuracy, and interoperability, etc. Meanwhile, significant technological development is provided by GNSS equipment (in some cases even at low-cost), which is able to collect measurements at much higher rates (up to 100 Hz), thus presenting new possibilities. Therefore, on the one hand, the new developments in GNSS stimulate a broad range of new applications for solid and fluid Earth investigations, both in post-processing and in real-time; on the other, this results in new problems and challenges in data processing that boost GNSS research. Algorithmic advancements are needed to address the opportunities and challenges in enhancing the accuracy, availability, interoperability, and integrity of high-precision GNSS applications.
This Special Issue is a platform to discuss new developments in high-precision GNSS algorithms and applications in geosciences; in this respect, contributions from other branches of geosciences (geodynamics, seismology, tsunamis, ionosphere, troposphere, etc.) are very welcome.Yours sincerely,

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 2000 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.
