Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Landslides II"
A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292). This special issue belongs to the section "Remote Sensing in Geology, Geomorphology and Hydrology".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019.
Triggered by precipitation, water-level fluctuation, freeze thaw, irrigation, earthquakes, anthropogenic activities and other factors, landslide has become a severe geohazard worldwide. In recent years, multiple remote sensing techniques that use synthetic aperture radar (SAR), light detection and ranging (LiDAR), optical, and photogrammetric measurements from spaceborne, airborne, mobile-vehicle, and ground-based platforms have been widely applied for landslide classification, detection, digital elevation model reconstruction, surface deformation monitoring, volume/thickness inversion, and stability and mechanism analysis. In addition, landslide susceptibility zonation, hazard assessment, and risk evaluation can be further analyzed by the synergic fusion of multiple remote sensing data and other observations with the aid of GIS and statistical tools. This Special Issue invites innovative remote sensing methods, inversion techniques, and stability and mechanism analyses on landslide studies.
Some of the topics we would suggest that the papers should focus on are:
- Landslide detection and inventory mapping with remote sensing data (SAR, optical, LiDAR, photogrammetric, and others);
- Multiple sensor data assimilation and synergy for landslide analysis;
- Landslide time-series deformation monitoring, validation and calibration;
- Landslide modeling and volume estimation;
- Landslide trigger factor analysis and mechanism inversion;
- Landslide susceptibility, stability analysis, hazard assessment, and risk evaluation;
- Landslide early-warning system design and implementation;
- Big data and deep learning on landslide analysis.

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. Remote Sensing 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.
