Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Satellite data such as land surface temperature, aerosol optical depth (AOD), and other products have been used to model multiple environmental pollutants, such as air temperature and air pollution across large spatial areas at high spatiotemporal resolutions. These models enable the exposure assessment of entire populations and have been shown to reduce error in exposure estimates, thus mitigating downward bias in health effect estimates. Recent advances in satellite remote sensing have lifted some of the limitations of previous satellite data, such as relatively coarse spatial and temporal resolutions, thus improving exposure assessment modeling. This Special Issue focuses on these new advances in relation to environmental exposure modeling and their application in epidemiological studies.

Research studies and reviews on the topic from around the world are encouraged to provide a more profound understanding of the topic and provide new insights.

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 1800 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.
