Imaging spectroscopy is increasingly finding its way into transdisciplinary research aiming to integrate state-of-the-art methods and data analysis concepts in response to today’s key environmental and societal challenges. The European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) Special Interest Group (SIG) on Imaging Spectroscopy aims at encouraging interdisciplinary discussions among specialists working with innovative Earth Observation methods and technologies.
With the 10th workshop jointly organized by EARSeL and the University of Zurich (Switzerland) in April 2017, the SIG Imaging Spectroscopy workshop series celebrates its 20th anniversary.
As a follow-up to the workshop, we are calling for papers on the work presented at the 10th EARSeL SIG Imaging Spectroscopy Workshop. In addition to this, we welcome papers from the global research community actively involved in research involving imaging spectroscopy. As such, the special issue is open to anyone doing research in this field. The selection of papers for publication will depend on quality and rigor of research. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
Advanced methods for spectroscopy calibration, data processing, and archiving
- Sensor calibration and product validation
- Software systems for imaging spectroscopy
- Big data and data mining
- Inversion schemes and data assimilation
- In-situ, field and laboratory spectroscopy
- Atmospheric compensation techniques
- Spectral databases and information systems
- Very high resolution spectroscopy
- Statistical and computational methods for data analysis
Integrated approaches in Earth System Science using spectroscopy
- Combined use of Earth Observation technologies (LiDAR, SAR, etc. and spectroscopy)
- Forward and inverse modeling of spheres
- Sphere specific analysis methods (atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, pedosphere, anthroposphere)
- Ecosystem processes and functions in vegetated ecosystems, soils, snow and ice, atmosphere, coastal and inland waters, urban areas
- Scaling, interactions and feedback mechanisms between and across spheres
- Transdisciplinary applications and Ecosystem Services
- Spectroscopy in the context of societal challenges (water scarcity, food security, biodiversity loss, etc.)
Next generation platforms and sensors
- Spectroscopy from ground, drone, air- and spaceborne platforms
- Visible, near-, mid- and thermal infrared spectral and multi-angular spectral measurements
- Emerging concepts, technologies and missions

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 2400 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.
