Understanding volcanic processes and hazards, assessing the associated risk for exposed communities, critical infrastructure and business, and enhancing risk awareness, are activities of vital importance towards risk mitigation. Remote sensing observations are increasingly being embedded into assessments of volcanic processes and risk, thanks to their capability to provide a spectrum of opportunities to accurately sense dynamics, magnitude, frequency and impacts of volcanic eruptions in the ultraviolet, visible, infrared, and microwave domains. Crucial is their potential to monitor volcanoes where no ground sensor networks exist, as well as otherwise inaccessible locations.
This Special Issue will gather original research articles, reviews, technical notes and letters on the use of satellite, aerial and ground-based remote sensing data and methods to sense volcanic processes (e.g., deformation, lava and pyroclastic flows, gas emissions and plumes), and assess the associated hazard and risk.
Extremely welcome are research studies combining two or more remote sensing methods or types of data, integrating remote sensing with in situ observations (e.g., GPS, seismic, geochemical data), or embedding remotely sensed information into volcanic processes and hazard and risk assessment models, near-real time monitoring, early warning and decision-making. Submissions of reviews on global or continental volcano databases, monitoring and models are equally encouraged.

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.
