Special Issue "New Insights in GNSS Remote Sensing for Ionosphere Monitoring and Modeling"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 April 2024 | Viewed by 5425
Interests: ionosphere; GNSS; navigation; Galileo ICA; GPS ICA; remote sensing; space weather
The objective of this Special Issue is to highlight the latest and novel contributions of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS)-derived data to the monitoring, modeling and study of the upper ionized region of the Earth’s atmosphere: the ionosphere. The ionosphere has become a key player in our everyday communications and navigation systems. Radio and GNSS signals travel through this layer of the atmosphere to reach their destinations being disrupted by changes in the ionosphere’s density and its composition. The increasing number of openly available ground- and space-based GNSS observations from current and planned observing systems, as well as distributed arrays of small instruments open new opportunities for deepening the research of the ionosphere and consolidating knowledge on the physics principles governing it.
This Special Issue aims to publish studies covering diﬀerent uses of GNSS data acquired by diﬀerent sensors and platforms, but also analysis and modeling techniques for a better understanding of the ionospheric processes. Hence, multisource data integration, multiscale approaches or studies focused on ionospheric weather services monitoring, among other issues, are welcome. Articles may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Algorithm and methodology development for ionospheric determination;
- GNSS-based ionospheric observing, monitoring and modeling at diﬀerent scales (local, regional and global);
- GNSS techniques for ionospheric space weather services;
- GNSS techniques in high accuracy positioning;
- Data analysis techniques and modeling that extend the capability of current observing systems are also 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.
