Special Issue "Sea Ice Remote Sensing and Analysis"
A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2016).
Interests: passive microwave remote sensing; sea ice; Arctic climate change
Interests: Satellite and airborne remote sensing of Arctic sea ice; Sea ice motion; Evolution of sea ice characteristics during summer melt; Trends in Arctic sea ice age and thickness
Our capabilities to remotely gather information on Arctic and Antarctic sea ice are increasing greatly. New satellite and airborne technologies are being deployed and even further improvements are under development. Additionally, new methods are being developed to maximize the effectiveness of current and historical data. These new methods and new technologies promise to greatly increase our understanding of sea ice. However, can our understanding keep up with the rapid changes in the sea ice itself? Prospective authors are invited to contribute to this Special Issue of Remote Sensing by submitting an original manuscript of their latest research results on advances in sea ice remote sensing.
We welcome submissions on all aspects of sea ice remote sensing, airborne and satellite, including integration of remotely sensed data with in situ observations, model outputs, and in data assimilation contexts, including:
- Products from new satellite instruments such as: AMSR2, CryoSat-2, SMOS, SMAP, Aquarius, VIIRS
- New approaches and analyses from historical time series such as: ESMR, SMMR, SSMI-SSMIS, ICESat, ERS-1/2, RADARSAT, AVHRR, MODIS
- Aircraft campaigns, including: IceBridge, CryoSat-2 validation, etc.
- Validation of sea ice remote sensing observations including comparison/integration with in situ data
- Data fusion (combined sensor products) and data assimilation techniques for remotely-sensed sea ice data
- Use of remote sensing fields for operational applications of sea ice analysis and forecasting
- Remote sensing products for comparison with and validation of sea ice models

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 2200 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.
