Recent research has revealed that the Arctic is warming four times faster than the rest of the world. The terrestrial and marine environment in the Arctic has been undergoing drastic changes in the cryosphere, ecosystem, and ocean. As most of the Arctic regions are located in places that are generally remote from human habitation and infrastructure, with sparse and limited ground observations, remote sensing techniques offer useful tools for detecting and monitoring the changes and processes of the Arctic terrestrial and marine environment. This Special Issue is dedicated to advancing our knowledge in the applications of remote sensing techniques for the quantitative analysis of the Arctic terrestrial and marine environment. We call for papers to be submitted in the context of the broad array of remote sensing platforms (e.g., handheld, drone, airborne, and satellite) and sensors (e.g., optical, microwave, radar, LiDAR), across various spatial, temporal, and spectral resolutions and extents, to examine the changes and processes of the Arctic terrestrial and marine environment. Contributions using new sensors, platforms, or algorithms that consider the integration of datasets or compare spatial heterogeneity in the Arctic are especially 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2700 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.
