One of the great global challenges we are facing is climate change. One major concern of climate change is the increase in extreme events, which have been reported by observational studies. Extreme events, such as heavy precipitation, floods, heatwaves, wildfires, and droughts have devastating impacts on many aspects of society and economy. There is a strong need to better understand and identify the mechanisms of extreme events, analyze their impacts, and project future changes. The recent advances in satellite remote sensing and the development of relevant satellite-based climate products provide great potential for hydro-climatic extremes studies. The aim of this Special Issue is to invite contributions that use various approaches, particularly satellite remote sensing and numerical/statistical models, to monitor, simulate, and forecast the spatial-temporal patterns of hydro-climatic extremes, and assess their impacts on society, economy, agriculture, and human health. We would like to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. Manuscripts are encouraged to cover a wide range of topics, which may include, but are not limited to:
- Observations of hydro-climatic extremes
- Modeling hydro-climate extremes of the past and future
- Assessment of hydro-climatic impacts across sectors
- Uncertainties analyses of satellite observations and models
- Regional and global climate extremes analyses, e.g., droughts, floods, heat waves, and extreme precipitation
- Early warning and forecasting of climate extremes
- Managing hydro-climatic extremes
We look forward to your contributions to this exciting Special Issue.

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.
