Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a new Topic titled "Advances in Earth Observation (EO) for Geosciences ", which will collect papers from different fields of geosciences that depict the potential and opportunities of earth observation. The aim of this collection is to provide a venue for recent advances in remote sensing, drone design and application, land sciences and geoinformation, and computational geointelligence, which may include the following topics, but not limited to:

  • Remote sensing applications; operational processing facilities; dedicated satellite missions; and spaceborne, airborne and terrestrial platforms.
  • Design and applications with satellites, cubesat, High-Altitude Student Platform (HASP), aircraft, aerial drones, terrestrial drones, and underwater drones.
  • Multi-spectral and hyperspectral remote sensing; active and passive microwave remote sensing; LiDAR and laser scanning; geometric reconstruction; physical modeling and signatures; change detection; image processing and pattern recognition; and data fusion and data assimilation.
  • Spatial data modeling; spatial data management; spatial analysis; computational geointelligence; cartography; spatial data infrastructures; geospatial web; citizen science; volunteered geographic information (VGI); location-based services and trajectory analysis; and GIS.
  • Land system science and social–ecological system research; land management; landscape design and landscape planning; climate interactions; and urban planning and development.

All papers will be published in an open access format following peer review. We look forward to your contributions.

The kinetic features of a slow-moving landslide situated above the Wudongde hydropower station were analyzed using particle flow code 3D (PFC3D) software. This research was based on geological investigations, remote sensing interpretation, and digital elevation models to build the structure of the Jinpingzi landslide. Finite element analysis (FEM) was used to determine the sliding surface. Strength reduction theory (SRT) and particle flow code coupling were used to invert the macro-strength parameters into micro-strength parameters. Finally, the slope failure process was simulated. Meanwhile, the displacement vector angle (DVA) and velocity were used for stability analysis. The simulation results of the kinetic features of slow-moving landslides show that the initial stage begins with accelerated movement, followed by constant-velocity movement and instability failure. The larger the reduction coefficient is, the shorter the duration of each stage is. A two-parameter instability criterion is proposed based on velocity, DVA, and reduction coefficient. Using this criterion, the critical velocity was 200 mm/s, and the critical DVA was 28.15°. The analysis results agree with the actual field monitoring results and motion process. This work confirms that the PFC3D modeling method is suitable for simulating the motion features of landslides. Full article
