Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coastal zones are characterized by exceptional environmental, social, and economic importance. At the same time, they are particularly vulnerable to climate-related changes. Remote sensing applications have enormous potential to monitor this intrinsically dynamic environment through remote observations and measurements that can provide important insights into coastal condition and coastal evolution at different geomorphologic settings and timescales.

This Special Issue invites scholars in the field to submit high-quality research that makes the most of remote sensing applications (from optical, radar and others) at the coastal zone. Articles should addressing issues that include, but are not limited to:

  • Sediment dynamic processes on deltas, beaches, dunes, and barrier islands;
  • Coastal processes in erosional landscapes as rocky cliffs;
  • Forcing mechanisms of the coastal processes as waves, tides, and currents;
  • Coastal geomorphology;
  • Coastal evolution;
  • Close-range remote sensing applications as plane or UAVs, and onsite cameras or webcams;
  • Contributions of remote sensing to coastal management.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2700 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.
