Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Remote sensing technologies have revolutionized our ability to monitor soil moisture dynamics at a regional scale, facilitating effective water resource management and sustainable agriculture practices. By leveraging multi-sensor remote sensing observations, in situ measurements, geographical data from multiple thematic scales, and model-data fusion techniques, researchers can capture the spatiotemporal variations of soil moisture and provide valuable insights for decision-making.

This Special Issue focuses on advances in remote sensing for regional soil moisture monitoring. It aims to bring together cutting-edge research in the field, highlighting innovative approaches, case studies, and review discussions that enhance our ability to retrieve and understand soil moisture dynamics and their applications. We welcome submissions that explore the forefront of remote sensing techniques and methodologies specifically tailored to regional soil moisture monitoring.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Unmanned aerial vehicle remote sensing for the high-resolution and near-real-time monitoring of soil moisture
  • Innovative remote sensing techniques for the retrieval of soil moisture
  • Analysis of recently available and near future satellite data products for regional soil moisture monitoring
  • Airborne calibration and validation experiments to showcase potential innovations for future remote sensing technologies
  • Case studies demonstrating the application of remote sensing in regional-scale soil moisture assessment
  • Approaches for integrating remote sensing and in situ observations to improve soil moisture monitoring accuracy
  • The impacts of soil moisture variability on hydrological processes, agricultural productivity, and climate dynamics
  • Uncertainty quantification and error propagation in remote-sensing-based soil moisture retrieval

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
