Special Issue "Applications of Remote Sensing Data in Water Resources Management"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2019).
The fresh water resource is confronted with challenges due to uncoordinated human activity in upstream regions, such as extraction, diversion and dam impoundment of river waters. Due to the planned development, the dry season water level will rise, and the wet season water level will become lower, relative to the current conditions. Furthermore, recent climate extremes, such as heavy rains and droughts, make societies that depend on agriculture, fisheries, and other components more vulnerable to the risks posed by climate change. The common challenge in developing countries is largely due to lack of resilient capacity to manage the water resources under the current socio-economic development pressures and impacts due to natural occurrences. However, the conventional ground networks of river/reservoir level, rainfall and groundwater cannot provide a holistic view of the dynamic state of water resources. Recently, various Earth observing satellite data have been successfully used with their own advantages and disadvantages to characterize and quantify terrestrial water dynamics. It is now urgently needed to use these satellite remote sensing techniques to help regional and national stakeholders enhance resilient capacity toward independent gauging of current and future state of water resources. This Special Issue seeks contribution from studies using historic and operational satellite data such as from radar/laser altimetry, GRACE/GRACE Follow On, Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Landsat, MODIS and many others for the sustainable management of vulnerable water resources.

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.
