In the past two decades, the interferometric SAR (InSAR) technique was widely applied in the field of remote sensing to measure Earth’s surface deformation due to various natural and man-made disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, groundwater depletion, underground mining. In recent times, the availability of high spatial and temporal coverage of SAR data has provided the additional advantage of time-series analysis. Currently, many satellites deliver SAR data with high spatial resolution (less than 5 m) with dual and full polarizations, therefore offering a unique opportunity to design precise displacement maps and evaluate damages on artificial structures such as bridges, dams, buildings, etc..
Therefore, high-resolution displacement products are the main current topic of interest in the development of InSAR techniques and will allow to better understand the processes of man-made hazards in urban areas and infrastructures. This Special Issue “InSAR in Remote Sensing” will focus on: (1) Innovative applications using time-series algorithms such as Persistent scatterers InSAR (PSI) and Small baseline subset (SBAS) that emphasize the importance of high-spatial-resolution SAR data for high-resolution InSAR products in urban areas; (2) The development on new time-series data processing algorithms by utilizing the capacity of dual- and full-polarization SAR data.
For this Special Issue, we are inviting the submission of original articles focused on, but not exclusively, the following topics:
- Monitoring Infrastructure deformations
- Advances in PSI and SBAS algorithms for urban deformation monitoring
- PSI results using polarimetric data
- Urban deformation monitoring using SAR tomography
- Comparative assessments of Conventional InSAR (PSI, SBAS) and SAR tomography
- Groundwater depletion

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.
