In recent years the use of remote sensing techniques has largely proved to support and improve the analyses of large mass movements like landslides and debris-flows. The capability of collecting multiple data source on very large areas and the development of processing techniques has resulted in an impressive growth of applications, in some cases already integrated into the routinely procedures of institutions focusing at hazard management. Application of remote sensing to landslide investigation can be categorized in three main aspects: 1) landslide recognition, inventory mapping, hazard zonation and susceptibility mapping; 2) landslide spatial analysis and prediction; and 3) landslide monitoring. This special issue would like to collect papers which highlight advancements in these topics, showing the state-of-the-art and some excellent research achievements.

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 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.
