Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The sea surface temperature (SST) products derived from satellites are under constant improvement.

This leads to advances in their use for research and applications. Many products are available operationally in near real time, allowing for the monitoring of marine heat waves and impacting biodiversity and integration into numerical modeling. Improvements in cloud masking and resolution have led to further advances in applications to coastal regions.

We are seeking manuscripts that focus on how advances in retrieval algorithms have increased the use of SST products. Specific examples include advances in retrieval algorithms that have enhanced the operationalization of the products and their use for monitoring the world’s oceans. We are particularly interests in manuscripts that detail the advances in SST products and outline their relationship to application/monitoring/operationlization.

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.
