Oceans cover more than 70% of the surface of the Earth. They play an extremely important role in affecting climate on a global scale, providing survival resources and environments to numerous species, and are the basis of human marine transportation and exploration. Thus, it is a worldwide and permanent common task to understand and monitor oceans. Radar is one of the most useful tools for obtaining ocean information using the technologies of remote sensing. The most widely accepted ocean sensing radars include but are not limited to the high-frequency (HF) surface wave and sky wave radars, microwave nautical radar, and laser radar (LIDAR). These “ocean radars” are able to provide sea surface information such as wind, wave, current, hard target, and bathymetry with different spatial and temporal resolutions. Though many successful applications have been reported for each kind ocean radar, there are still plenty of questions that deserve to be explored. The objective of this Special Issue is to provide a forum for ocean radar researchers to present their recent advances in the field. Possible topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to the investigation of:
- Surface and internal waves
- Sea surface winds and currents
- Coastal bathymetry
- Sea ice and iceberg
- Small vessels
- Oil spill
- Sea surface scattering
using HF surface wave and sky wave radars, microwave nautical radar, and LIDAR.

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.
