Special Issue in Remote Sensing: Advanced Ground Penetrating Radar Theory and Applications
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has seen a steady growth of research activity and interest in the last years. Recent methodological and technological advances have allowed critical improvements to the key performance metrics of GPR systems. These advances include faster processing of large data sets due to an increase in computational resources, new hardware with increased sensitivity and immunity to noise, and algorithm improvements. Spurred by these advances, budgetary allocations for GPR prospecting in applications such as road monitoring and humanitarian demining, as well as GPR-related commercial activities, have also seen major growth.
The present Special Issue of Remote Sensing is devoted to the latest developments in GPR systems and applications, with an emphasis both on methodological and technological aspects. The intent of this issue is to have a broad scope, surveying recent progress in GPR in general. Nevertheless, emerging GPR applications based on (but not exclusively) the use of drones, positioning systems and positioning sensors, virtual reality, and monitoring are particularly welcomed. New research and field applications involving multimodal integration with other remote sensing modalities or geophysical data are also of interest.
Open access journals offer perhaps the easiest way to communicate your ideas and latest research outcomes to the international community. We invite you to submit contributions to this open access journal on the GPR topic that is of most interest to you.
The interested authors are kindly invited to check and follow the specific instructions for authors, available at

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.
