The sea is at the center of key economic activities, such as maritime transport, energy, mining, fishing and aquaculture, boating, coastal tourism, as well as more technological sectors such as marine biotechnology. The theme of “Blue growth” is increasingly central in the planning of funding within the international arena, this being a long-term strategy to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors, both in coastal and offshore environment. Such a strategy is rooted in the awareness that seas and oceans represent a driving force for the international economy, with enormous potential for technological innovation and sustainable growth. For those reasons the need to monitor seas and oceans is becoming fundamental to improve our knowledge of both physical and chemical phenomena that evolve in the marine environment.
The above context motivates this Special Issue, which aims to investigate matters relating to:
1) technologies for sea observation and monitoring (waves, currents, bathymetry, wind);
2) monitoring of water chemical and physical parameters;
3) assimilation of marine coastal and deep environment data into numerical models;
4) technology and techniques for oil spill detection and analysis;
5) technologies and techniques for ships and objects detection.

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 bimonthly 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.
