Wetlands are an important habitat worldwide and play a crucial role in ecosystem services including maintaining species habitat, promoting ecosystem function, mitigating storm surge impacts, improving water quality, and influencing land use changes. Wetland vegetation monitoring presents a variety of unique features that make large-scale assessments of cover and function across heterogeneous wetland landscapes challenging. Advances in remote sensing technologies (e.g., spectral, airborne, LIDAR, eddy covariance towers, satellite) and techniques are useful applications to monitor the impact of a range of variables on wetland landscapes, including habitat delineation, climate change, and natural and anthropogenic disturbances.
This Special Issue seeks original and innovative applications of remote sensing techniques and technologies in wetland vegetation monitoring. We welcome a broad variety of applications and scales that show the potential for use in the field of wetland monitoring

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 2400 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.
