Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, one of the critical questions in the application of remote sensing data sets is “what data set do I use?” The answer to this question can depend on many factors, including temporal resolution, spatial resolution, data uncertainty, temporal coverage and spatial coverage. These types of questions are inherent to the user community and have a commonality to the broad range of remote sensing data sets, inclusive of sea level (altimetry), sea surface winds (scatterometry), and sea surface temperature (infrared  sensors) and ocean color (visible).  Users struggle with finding, in one place, information that can allow them to make a knowledgeable decision about the data set for their application.

We are looking for  articles that address details and characteristics of remote sensing products, that could provide the user community with necessary information for making decisions on the appropriateness of products for specific applications and research problems.  Articles that address the general characteristics of the data sets and specific examples of applications are highly encouraged.  Additionally, articles that focus on data quality issues and/or uncertainties are encouraged. Comparison papers that can help users make decisions on the suitability of remote sensing data sets for their applications/research needs are highly encouraged.

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 2200 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.
