Space-based lidar instruments can provide important measurements of ocean ecosystems that both complement passive ocean color observations and address some of the limitations of this latter traditional technology. Recent studies indicate that water optical properties can be obtained from space-based lidars: the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP) aboard the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observations (CALIPSO) satellite (NASA-CNES, launched in April 2006), the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS) onboard the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) satellite (NASA, launched in September, 2018), the Atmospheric Laser Doppler Instrument (ALADIN) high-spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) onboard Atmospheric Dynamics Mission-Aeolus (ADM-Aeolus) satellite (ESA, launched in August 2018).
This Special Issue aims to present a collection of original research articles and review papers on Lidar technologies and applications related to the characterization of water optical properties, e.g., backscattering and attenuation coefficients, particulate backscattering coefficient, chlorophyll-a concentrations, etc., and bottom characteristics, e.g., bathymetry, seafloor changes due to disasters, coral bleaching, etc. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Lidar inversions and machine learning;
- Lidar simulators of spaceborne oceanic lidar;
- High Spectral Resolution Lidar;
- Multispectral and multi-angular spaceborne Lidar applications;
- Hyperspectral fluorescence Lidar;
- Global Ocean phytoplankton studies;
- Ocean trash detection;
- Innovative Lidar validation approaches.

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 2700 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.
