Radar has been widely used for remote sensing of weather, climate, hydrology, and the environment. Over the past 30 years, numerous radar techniques and algorithms have been developed for measuring, modeling, simulating and forecasting the Earth’s atmosphere state. In particular, polarization diversity has great potential to characterize precipitation microphysics and different atmospheric properties. The ground-based polarimetric radar can also be used for validation of satellite (i.e., passive or active space-borne sensors) observations and products. This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in polarimetric radar applications in geoscience and remote sensing. Contributions are welcome from all areas of active remote sensing of the atmosphere. Submissions are solicited covering, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Concept of wave propagation and polarization
- Radar remote sensing of environment
- Advances in polarimetric radar hardware, signal processing, and data quality control
- Scanning and vertically pointing cloud and precipitation radars
- Identification of hydrometeor phase using polarimetric and Doppler spectra radar measurements
- Remote sensing precipitation measurement, validation, and applications
- The International Workshop on Small Weather Radars (ISWR 2018)

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 2200 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.
