Land subsidence resulting from multiple natural and human-induced processes is a global phenomenon, adversely affecting many regions worldwide. Population growth, increasing groundwater demand, and future climatic conditions are expected to intensify the problem. The mitigation of subsidence adverse consequences requires identifying and monitoring subsiding areas, understanding the factors that control the phenomenon, modelling its evolution and predicting its impact in densely populated urban areas.
Over the past two decades, Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) techniques have revolutionized the study of land subsidence induced by a wide variety of subsurface processes, including natural phenomena, such as faulting, folding, volcanism and dissolution in karst environments; or anthropogenic processes such as fluid extraction, mining activities and other processes involving the removal of a supporting volume from beneath an area.
We would like to invite you to participate in this Special Issue, which will focus on the application of Remote Sensing and Radar Interferometry (InSAR) techniques for the detection, characterization and modelling of land subsidence. Papers addressing vulnerability and impact assessment of subsidence in urban structures and infrastructures are also welcome. Submissions are encouraged to cover a broad range of topics, which may include, but are not limited to, the following land subsidence types: (i) tectonic subsidence; (ii) volcanic subsidence; (iii) subsidence due groundwater abstraction; (iv) mining subsidence; (v) subsidence due to groundwater dissolution; (vi) other subsidence phenomena.

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.
