Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Extreme weather in the form of tornadoes, thunderstorms, hurricanes, winter storms, and heat waves is the cause of major societal disruptions with severe impacts on the economy, environment, and human lives worldwide. Accurate prediction of such events is crucial for managing emergency responses and mitigating their impacts. In addition, having a better understanding of uncertainty in severe weather prediction improves situational awareness and builds confidence in impact modeling that relies on weather prediction outcomes.

The previous Special Issue on "Prediction of Extreme Weather Events" was a great success. The second volume aims to bring together current state-of-the-art science research on the tools and methodologies to accurately predict extreme weather such as tornadoes, hurricanes, nor’easters, winter storms, and heat waves, among others. Topics that discuss the influence of severe weather prediction toward preparing for and managing the impacts of severe weather (e.g., floods, droughts, landslides, wildfires, and social impacts) will also be favored. Manuscripts that include remote sensing products to evaluate and/or improve extreme weather prediction will be preferred.

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.
