Special Issue Information
Water is the key element of ecosystems and profoundly impacts ecosystem structures, environmental quality, and ecological services in different climatic regions and at different scales. Our understanding of these processes at the regional scale is somewhat limited due to a lack of regional information. Remote sensing provides a powerful tool to help us understand the status and processes controlling ecosystem services at large scales. Many remote sensing-based methods have been developed to measure fluxes in the soil-vegetation-atmosphere interface and provide regional information on water cycles, resources evolution, landscape patterns, ecological processes, and ecohydrology variability and vulnerability. However, the use of remote sensing techniques in environmental monitoring requires ground truthing and validation. Therefore, it is important to test remote sensing techniques to understand their strengths and limitations for eco-hydro-environmental studies. Through case studies, we will be able to quantify the uncertainties of remote sensing techniques to help us better understand ecohydrological interactions and dynamic stressors in order to develop strategies toward sustainable development goals.
This Special Issue focuses on remote sensing applications for providing key information on ecology, hydrology, and environment, such as precipitation, evapotranspiration, vegetation, water pollution, land degradation, carbon reduction, and disaster assessment over different scales. Both innovative methodologies and successful case studies are expected.
In this Special Issue, we are seeking review and research papers exploring remote sensing techniques in environmental monitoring and assessment. In particular, we invite articles exploring the following themes (but not limited to them):
- Remote sensing for landscape pattern /vegetation evolution modelling and assessment.
- Remote sensing for hydrology and water resources evaluation and simulation.
- Remote sensing for ecohydrology and eco-environmental processes and dynamics .
- Remote sensing for soil salinity assessment and prediction.
- Remote sensing for natural disaster monitoring and mitigation.

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.
