A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292). This special issue belongs to the section "Remote Sensing in Geology, Geomorphology and Hydrology".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Interests: satellite remote-sensing for hydrology; geodesy
Interests: remote sensing; lakes; climate variability
All around the world, millions of lakes dot the landscape. Scientifically, lakes are of great interest in hydrology, limnology, climatology, biogeochemistry, and geodesy. Lakes and enclosed inland seas are integrators of environmental and climatic changes occurring within their contributing basins. The factors that drive lake conditions vary widely across space and time, and lakes, in turn, impact their surrounding environments in important and diverse ways. Lakes serve as sentinels of current and changing conditions, as actors in influencing their surrounding environments, and as integrators of human and environmental activities in their contributing basins. One of the most fruitful ways that lake scientists might collaborate is via the shared tool of remote sensing, which, through existing and planned sensors, can help to extend on-the-ground measurements to regional and global contexts. Existing and forthcoming remote-sensing technologies possess great potential to accurately monitor lake-storage change, water surface-temperature, ice, and watercolor. The aim of this Special Issue is to make state-of-the-art remote-sensing technology for studying lake changes and their interaction with their environment, and the impact and feedback of the climate change.

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.
