Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a unique technology that provides new opportunities for the interpretation of remote sensing data derived from space and airborne (piloted and remote piloted) data acquisition systems. In particular, the increasing number of satellites equipped with SAR data acquisition systems that are being launched with a range of characteristics are enabling a better understanding of the earth’s environment, such as for vegetation analysis, forest inventories, land subsidence, and urban analysis. As well, airborne systems for remote piloted systems and ground-based systems are available. This Special Issue is intended to present high-quality scientific review papers of existing achievements in the development of SAR technologies and applications of SAR, or research papers that describe new developments of SAR technologies, including wide band multi-polarized arrays; digital beamforming; bistatic and multi-static modes; improved methods of interpretation of SAR data for soil moisture monitoring, crop growth, forest biomass and forest characteristics, and urban analysis; as well as improved methods interferometry and integrated polarimetry and differential interferometry for elevation determinations and land subsidence. In car SAR systems for vehicle navigation will also be included in this Special Issue.

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.
