Special Issue "Contributions of Remote Sensing to Hydrologic Flux Quantification"
A special issue of Water (ISSN 2073-4441). This special issue belongs to the section "New Sensors, New Technologies and Machine Learning in Water Sciences".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2021).
Since the launch of Landsat 1, back in 1972, space-based remote sensing has transformed how we visualize the Earth’s surface. Space agencies across the globe have invested billions on numerous missions designed to better conceptualize earth processes over the last five decades. Given the importance of water resources, many of these missions have a strong hydrology science focus, such as TRMM and GPM for precipitation, SMOS and SMAP for soil moisture, MODIS for evapotranspiration, the planned SWOT mission for surface runoff, and GRACE for changes in total terrestrial water, to name only a few. In this Special Issue, we encourage the submission of novel studies that use space-based remote sensing data to quantify any hydrologic flux from the local to global scale. Approaches can include but are not necessarily limited to direct comparison of remote sensing data with ground-based observations, hydrological modeling efforts that incorporate remotely sensed data, and/or the fusion of remotely sensed observations with land surface model output based on data assimilation or other methodologies. Studies that examine long-term trends in hydrologic fluxes that can be potentially linked to global climate change during the satellite era are particularly welcome.

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 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 2000 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.
