Floodpath lakes and wetlands, which are affected by seasonal variations of water level and surface area are sensative to natural and anthropohenic impacts, such as climate change, human-induced intervantions on hydrological regimes, and land use management and land cover change. For example, Poyang Lake and Dongting Lake in the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River, are among the most representative floodpath lakes with dramatic spatial and temporal variation patterns in water and wetland dynamics. These large dynamic wetlands, such as Poyang Lake wetland, are recognized to be ones of the most important wetlands of the world for its extroordinary biodiversity and conservation challenges. Remote sensing has the unique capabilities and advantages in monitoring hydrological dynamics of floodpath lakes and wetlands in scientific explorations and management practices.
With the rapid development of remote sensing science and technologies, this Special Issue aims to publish original manuscripts of latest innovative research in recent advances in remote sensing of floodpath lakes and wetlands. Comprehensive reviews of this research field are also welcome. The potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- State-of-the-art remote sensing technologies for capturing dynamics of floodpath lakes and wetlands
- Evaluations of newly available and/or new development of remote sensing approaches for studying floodpath lakes and wetlands
- Methods for processing multispatial, multitemporal, multisensor remote sensing data in monitoring of floodpath lakes and wetlands (e.g., integration of multisource geospatial data from in situ monitoring and measurements, UAV observations, satellite imagery, habitat assessments, social economic development and policy factors, etc.)
- Applications of remote sensing in inventory, monitoring and management of floodpath lakes and wetlands (e.g., habitat mapping and biodiversity conservation, impacts from human activities, detection of extreme hydrological events, and environmental and ecological impact analysis)

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.
