Remote sensing provides several advantages over in situ measurements, such as the ability to provide measurements of the ocean over a large spatial range at high temporal resolutions, but for a significantly reduced cost. Indeed, with the development and launch of a new generation of satellite platforms and their sensors, exciting avenues in the marine sciences are being opened at a rapid pace. Nevertheless, numerous challenges and unsolved problems related to the development of remote sensing applications within oceanography remain. This Special Issue seeks to explore the current state-of-the-art, future developments, and open questions of the applications of remote sensing in oceanography. Authors are encouraged to provide submissions covering all aspects of ocean remote sensing, ranging from observation techniques used in high-frequency coastal radar or satellite studies to new applications of artificial intelligence methods for pre- and postprocessing remotely sensed data. Review articles are also welcomed, on the condition that they are authoritative. Submissions that contribute towards the United Nations’ Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030), Sustainability Development Goals, Small Island Developing States, and those that consider the Blue Economy are especially welcomed. Articles related to the following topics are invited for submission:
- Innovative or improved methods and algorithms of remote sensing for oceanography applications.
- Observations using drone/unmanned aircraft system (UAS) imagery, high-frequency coastal radar, airborne LiDAR, satellites.
- Applications of artificial intelligence for pre- and post-processing remotely sensed data.
- Advances in big data management including the exploitation of cloud platforms for marine studies.
- Climate and anthropogenic influence on marine systems.
- Marine pollution and water quality monitoring.
- Detection and monitoring of ocean circulations, wave properties, ocean temperatures, and sea ice mapping.
- Coastal applications such as tracking shoreline changes, nearshore topography mapping, erosion assessment, sediment transport.
- Integration of remoting sensing data with in-situ measurements or numerical ocean modeling for data assimilation.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2500 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.
