Quantifying landscape evolution and erosion are two of the hot topics in present-day geomorphological and active tectonic research. In this regard, remote sensing has experienced a great development in the last years providing one of the main tools to get information about the present-day topography and active processes. Worldwide Digital Elevation Models (DEM) obtained from RADAR or local ones constructed by UAV or LiDAR techniques are two of the main sources of information about the present-day topography at regional and local scales respectively. Multi-temporal studies based on series of optical images, InSAR techniques or DEMs of Differences approaches provide powerful information to detect, quantify and model changes in topography and understand underlying processes. Recently adopted 4D and real-time monitoring approaches allow to elucidate the role of individual events on erosion and to establish accurate frequency-magnitude relationships.
In this special issue we want to compile the state-of-the-art research that specifically addresses how remote sensing is being used in landscape evolution studies and to monitor, quantify and model erosion. Review contributions are welcomed as well as papers describing new methodologies, or outstanding 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 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 2500 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.
