Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,
 
The study of earthquakes is of global interest, mainly because the comprehension of such phenomena is useful to safeguard human lives. To this aim, tools (such as seismic networks and arrays, but also data analysis procedures) by which detect and localize from small to large magnitudes earthquakes quickly and accurately are fundamental. Since the last few years, advances in technology have allowed seismologists to design seismic networks more and more sophisticated (with boreholes or ocean bottom sensors). At the same time, potentially interesting seismological information can be obtained by instruments developed for different purposes (e.g., optical fiber, geophones, rotational sensors).
Besides earthquakes, there are many phenomena that we are able to record with seismic networks; they are both of natural origin (as volcanic eruptions, landslides, sinkholes, weather events, meteorite impacts), and anthropogenic (as underground fluid injections, quarry blasts, nuclear explosions, etc.).
In this special issue we aim to collect scientific papers focused on advanced techniques of seismic monitoring or data analysis of natural and anthropogenic events. Also, contributions from studies carried out by ‘unconventional’ seismic networks are welcome.
  • tectonic and induced earthquakes
  • fiber DAS networks
  • no earthquakes seismic signature events
  • rotational sensors
  • off-shore seismicity location improvements
  • seismic information from unconventional sensors

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 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.
