Surface runoff includes a variety of hydrological processes crucial for understanding and modelling, among others, water resources management, flood formation, and erosion dynamic.
Recent innovation and advancement in sensors, computational power, and monitoring platforms are rewording the meaning of remote sensing that was previously limited to satellite observations. Nowadays, CubeSat systems, drones, radar technology, and image analysis are augmenting the remote sensing perspective and the field of surface runoff observations may greatly benefit from such multidisciplinary approaches.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect contributions providing innovative surface runoff remote sensing applications at different spatial scales related, but not limited, to:
- Hydrometric observation;
- River velocity measurements;
- Hillslope runoff velocity estimation;
- Soil water content estimation;
- Water stress estimation;
- Floodplain and flood inundation observations.
- Role of vegetation land cover and land use activities

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 1800 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.
