Ground-based radar interferometry, i.e., the application of the principles of the spaceborne interferometry using a ground-based instrument, is a fast growing research field. Since the first pioneering works that dated back to the early 2000s, ground-based radar techniques have made great strides. Currently real aperture and synthetic aperture ground-based interferometric radar systems are popular geotechnical equipment for detecting the changes on slopes activated by landslides or mines. They are routinely used also for monitoring large structures like bridges, dams, towers, buildings. Worldwide, several commercial companies manufacture interferometric radars.
We would like to invite you to submit articles about your recent research with respect to the following topics.
- Processing techniques for focusing, co-registering, and unwrapping data acquired through ground-based radar interferometry
- Processing techniques for mitigating the atmospheric effects in ground-based radar interferometry
- Design and testing of ground-based interferometric radar systems
- Remote sensing of landslides, volcanoes, glaciers, snow avalanches, mines, engineered slopes, and infrastructures such as buildings, dams, bridges and towers through ground-based radar interferometry
- Ground-based radar interferometry as tool for emergency management
- Review articles covering one or more of these topics are also welcome.
- Authors are required to check and follow the specific Instructions to Authors, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/remotesensing/instructions.

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.
