Acoustics is the primary method for remote sensing of the underwater environment because sound can propagate over much greater underwater distances than electromagnetic waves can. Since roughly 70% of the world's surface is covered by ocean water, acoustics is typically necessary to probe the majority of the Earth's ecosystems, and the majority of its solid surface, which is submerged. Acoustics has also become an important tool for remote sensing the geophysical properties of the oceans themselves.
This Special Issue of Remote Sensing on “Underwater Acoustic Remote Sensing” is designed to explore all aspects of acoustic remote sensing in the underwater environment, including methods and applications. For example, we would like to invite authors to submit original manuscripts on the following topics:
- underwater sensing of marine life
- sensing of marine geophysical features and phenomena
- underwater ambient sounds and noise
- underwater sensing in polar environments
- underwater remote sensing methods, systems, and instruments
- propagation and scattering in underwater sensing
- signal processing in underwater acoustic remote sensing
- sensing in extraterrestrial oceans

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.
