Remote sensing data (GNSS, optical data, radar data, etc.) has been proved to be effective in detecting main fault system and in measuring fault-related deformation in the skin-deep of the Earth’s crust to describe the nature of active faults and related neotectonic features.
Although remote sensing of faulting and tectonics is a recent development relative to traditional field-based or seismological methods, during the last three decades it has developed from theoretical concept to a technique that is revolutionizing how to study the tectonic deformation.
This Special Issue of Remote Sensing focuses on examining the current and future trends of remote sensing to detect and monitoring tectonic deformation focusing on algorithms, applications, methodologies and case studies. New results, reviews and field measurements at a local and regional scale, and applications to analogue models are welcomed.
All types of original research contributions will be considered.Dr. Chiara Del Ventisette

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.
