Special Issue "Application of Remote Sensing in Hydrogeology: Landslides, Land Subsidence and Uplift"
A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292). This special issue belongs to the section "Remote Sensing in Geology, Geomorphology and Hydrology".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 September 2021.
Interests: implementation of geodatabase of geological; geomorphological; and environmental data; detection and mapping of landslides in different climatic; geological; and morphological environments; analysis of landslide types and patterns in relation to geology and topography; temporal forecasting of landslides using multi-temporal inventory maps; landslide impact analysis on human structure; landslide risk assessment and mapping; geological and geomorphological interpretation of ground deformation measured by satellites
Hydrogeology requires a multidisciplinary approach and interdisciplinary research aimed at investigating the interaction between water and geological systems. Various hydrological, geological, and geomorphological factors play a major role in the occurrence and movement of groundwater and have consequences for a wide range of geomorphological processes. Rainfall precipitation, infiltration, and groundwater are some of the most important landslide triggering factors, increasing the pore water pressure and decreasing the shear strength of the soil. Groundwater deficits may trigger compaction of aquifers resulting in land subsidence. Uplift can also be related to the groundwater level changes following the interruption of water pumping, or climatic drivers.
Remote sensing for earth observation, including synthetic aperture radar (SAR), optical, multi/hyper-spectral, thermal imagery, aerial photography, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are useful tools for investigating groundwater level change impacts at the local and global scales with different spatial and temporal resolution.
The goal of this Special Issue of Remote Sensing (Section Remote Sensing in Geology, Geomorphology, and Hydrology) is to gather original research or case studies on the detection, characterization, and modelling of landslides, land subsidence, and uplift due to groundwater level changes.
We invite you to submit articles about your recent research including, but not limited to, the following topics:
- landslide detection using remote sensing;
- landslide modelling with remote sensing data;
- land subsidence detection using remote sensing;
- land subsidence modelling with remote sensing data;
- detection and analysis of uplift based on remote sensing data;
- applications; and
- case studies.

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.
