Special Issue "Advances in Quantitative Remote Sensing: Past, Present and Future"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2019).
The overall intent of this Special Issue is to demonstrate significant advances in the field of Earth remote sensing during recent decades, and exciting scientific and technical challenges and opportunities ahead. This Special Issue is therefore devoted to innovative papers based on multi-sensors and/or multispectral remotely sensed observations of the Earth system towards an understanding of the fundamental processes that control its key components (atmosphere, land, oceans, and polar regions) and their interactions, which in turn control the variability and change of these components, and the entire Earth system. Such knowledge and resulting data are essential for developing and evaluating the performance of the Earth system models used for the prediction of weather conditions, and water and energy cycles that have profound societal importance. Specifically, papers on the use of observations from long-term records (e.g. Landsat and EOS), multiple satellites (EOS A- and B-Trains, and combined optical and microwave measurements), and combined polar and geostationary satellites are welcomed. Studies focused on innovative use of remotely sensed observations in deriving useful information (e.g. sun induced florescence, vegetation chemistry and composition, species habitat, landscape level ecosystems genotype and phenotype) are also invited. We also welcome papers focused on the next generation of Earth-observing sensors/satellites that build on previous generations and/or introduce new ones based on a combinations of sensors and satellites (e.g. micro-sensor/satellite constellations).Dr. Ghassem R.

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. Sensors 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.
