Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Estuarine environments are among the world's most valuable ecosystems, offering a wide range of goods and services. They act as vital habitats and nurseries for many animals, provide storm protection, store carbon, and purify water. Despite their numerous benefits, estuaries are deteriorating worldwide due to escalating threats from human activities and climate change. In this context, the development and application of remote sensing and numerical modelling methods have proved crucial in generating data to support our understanding of the processes and mechanisms driving short- and long-term changes and thus support estuarine management.

This Special Issue aims to highlight the latest developments in the application of remote sensing and numerical modelling methods to estuarine systems. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Monitoring estuarine processes through remote sensing methods;
  • Deriving estuarine ecosystem products from remote sensing data;
  • Mapping ecosystem services through remote sensing or numerical modelling methods;
  • Applying remote sensing or numerical modelling methods to assess hazards and risks in estuarine environments;
  • Observing platforms for the continuous monitoring of estuarine environments;
  • Monitoring or modelling hydrodynamic, morphodynamic, biogeochemical, ecological, and biophysical processes in estuaries;
  • Modelling the effects of climate change on and/or anthropogenic threats to estuarine ecosystems.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
