Interests: optical/thermal remote sensing in: (i) forecasting and monitoring of natural hazards/disasters, such as forest fire, drought, and flooding; (ii) comprehending the dynamics of natural resources, such as forestry, agriculture, and water; and (iii) modelling issues related to boreal environment
Droughts and floods are very common phenomena that frequently occur in various places across the world. Here, the objective is to bring together scientist(s)/researcher(s) working on this topic, aiming to highlight ongoing research investigations and new applications in the field. Within this framework, the editors of this Special Issue would like to invite both applied and theoretical research contributions, submissions of original works furthering knowledge concerned with any aspect of the use of remote sensing and/or geospatial technologies in droughts and/or floods. Note that these manuscripts must be not only unpublished, but also not under consideration for potential publication elsewhere. In the case of the remote sensing data, the manuscripts may use data acquired by optical, thermal, hyperspectral, active and passive microwave platforms using either airborne or spaceborne remote sensing platforms.

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. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
