Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Groundwater from River Basin to Global Scales"
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: closed (28 February 2018)
Satellite-based remote sensing has become an emerging technique for monitoring the terrestrial water cycle from regional to global scales. Satellite geodesy methods such as Gravity Recovery And Climate Experience (GRACE), Global Positioning System (GPS), and satellite altimetry provide alternative ways of measuring water, ice, and snow distribution within the Earth system. Various components of the terrestrial water cycle have been measured by satellite-based sensors like Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR), Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS), and Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) for surface soil moisture; Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) for precipitation; Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) for vegetation cover, to name a few.
Despite the ever increasing interest of using remote sensing technique, subsurface hydrology has yet to realize its benefits for monitoring groundwater from space. The goal of this Special Issue is to demonstrate the contribution of satellite observations and physical/conceptual/statistical modelling techniques to estimating groundwater storage changes and discharge from river basin to global scales. Contributions introducing the latest developments in terms of new sensors and satellite missions that will be available in the near future, as well as those addressing integration of remote sensing products with the surface and groundwater process models are particularly invited.

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.
