Interests: astronomy, planetary science, interiors and atmospheres of the giant planets in our solar system and exoplanets
General interest in giant planets has increased in recent years with current, recent, and (potential) future missions, and above all because these planets provide nearby examples of the ever-growing number of exoplanets. With the potential to soon be able to characterize a large number of exoplanets, it is becoming ever so important to understand the make-up and evolution of the planets in our own Solar System. With recent advances in remote sensing techniques using premier telescopes, state-of-the-art instruments, and unique remote sensing capabilities from recent missions, we focus in this Special Issue of Remote Sensing on observations of giant planets across the electromagnetic spectrum. Together, these data paint a picture of the giant planets from their interiors up to their outermost atmospheric layers. In this issue, we will compare and contrast the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn with the smaller ice giants Uranus and Neptune. We will also compare our detailed knowledge of solar system giants with the large amount of data coming from giant exoplanets and the prospects for this field in the near future. Review contributions are welcomed, as well as papers describing new observations and analyses.

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.
