Ocean surface currents play a pivotal role in Earth's climate system and marine ecosystems, as well as in human activities. The accurate monitoring and understanding of surface currents are essential for a wide range of applications, including weather forecasting, coastal management, shipping, and search and rescue operations. Remote sensing technologies offer unique capabilities for observing ocean surface currents, ranging from the submesoscale to mesoscale, and provide critical information on the underlying processes involved in air–sea interactions.
This Special Issue invites contributions that explore the latest advances, challenges and applications in the remote sensing of ocean surface currents. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the development and improvement of remote sensing techniques such as Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), scatterometry, altimetry, and optical remote sensing, as well as emerging observational platforms, including autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), gliders, and other in situ measurement systems. Submissions addressing air–sea interactions and upper ocean dynamic measurements using these platforms are particularly encouraged. Furthermore, we welcome studies focusing on the validation and uncertainty assessment of remote sensing-derived surface current data using various validation techniques such as drifters, moored buoys, and other in situ observations. Contributions may address the challenges associated with spatial and temporal resolution, accuracy, data coverage, and the impact of environmental factors on accuracy and detection.
This Special Issue aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders from diverse fields to share their knowledge, insights, and experiences, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and promoting the advancement of remote sensing techniques for the study and management of ocean surface currents.

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.
