Remote sensing (RS) has revolutionized our understanding of sensitive regions such as coastal zones and inland waters which play a crucial role in human life as most world’s population concentrates on these regions. Amidst the various RS techniques, due to its all weather, day and night capability, satellite altimetry gained increasing importance over the last 26 years. While over the ocean satellite altimetry has long gained a stage of maturity, over regions of coastal zones and inland waters the success of satellite altimetry is even challenging as these measurements require tuned waveform retracking and corrections to the measured range. In spite of this, there is an increasing number of applications over coastal zones and inland waters using satellite altimetry alone or in combination with other remote sensing data (e.g., space-borne gravimetry, sea surface temperature and ocean colour), in situ data (e.g., tide gauges) and ocean, climate and hydrologic models.
Papers on all aspects related with coastal and inland waters studies that make use of remote sensing techniques, in particular satellite altimetry, in combination with in situ observations and models are welcome in this Special Issue.
Paper topics may include but are not limited to the following:
- Regional and coastal sea level change and monitoring;
- Coastal dynamics;
- Data processing techniques for improving satellite altimetry over coastal zones and inland waters, both for low resolution mode (LRM) and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) altimeters: waveform retracking, range and geophysical corrections
- Regional tide models;
- Remote Sensing products for applications over coastal zones and inland waters;
- Satellite altimetry calibration and validation with fiducial reference measurements;
- Coastal upwelling ecosystems change monitoring using Remote Sensing data synergy (e.g. space-borne gravimetry, sea surface temperature, ocean colour, imaging SAR), in particular from the Sentinel constellation
- River and lake water level monitoring;
- Regional studies over closed and semi-enclosed seas;
- Assimilation of Remote Sensing data into coastal dynamics, storm surge and hydrologic models;
- Innovative applications over coastal zones and inland waters.

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.
