Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Vegetation plays a key role in the system of the earth and has a significant impact on carbon, water and energy cycles. Changes in vegetation can indirectly reflect changes in the environmental quality, and indicate climate and environmental evolutions. The accurate assessment of vegetation change (including vegetation cover, greeness, phenology and productivity, etc.) and its response to climate change and human activity is crucial to the realization of environmental protection and sustainable development. 

This Special Issue (Volume II) aims to enhance our understanding of vegetation change and its response to climate change and human activity, which is an important aspect of remote sensing with regard to vegetation. We invite authors to contribute to this Special Issue to improve and consolidate our current knowledge in this field. Manuscripts related to theories, methods and applications are welcome.

Submissions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Vegetation cover change;
  • Vegetation phenology change;
  • Vegetation productivity change;
  • Crop yield change;
  • Response of vegetation to climate and human activity;
  • Effect of vegetation on environment.

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.
