A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292). This special issue belongs to the section "Satellite Missions for Earth and Planetary Exploration".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2023) | Viewed by 5023
Interests: plasma instruments for ionospheric observation; ionospheric data analysis; preseismic disturbance of ionosphere
Ionospheric disturbances are considered as one of the largest error sources in satellite navigation systems and satellite communications. With the development of technology, the ionospheric and plasma characteristics can now be accurately observed via satellite measurement, which provides an effective way for us to deepen our knowledge of near-Earth space and to better understand the impact of space weather events on precise positioning utilized for navigation.
This Special Issue aims to document the use of satellite remote sensing and in situ measurements to characterize ionospheric and plasma dynamics in the near-Earth environment and asses their impact on space weather. Topics include but are not limited to (1) in situ measurement research and modeling of the global ionosphere/plasma through GNSS or low earth orbit satellites such as ESA Swarm, CSES, C/NOFS, and ICON; (2) the observation tracing and interaction mechanism between ionospheric disturbance/ionospheric delay and space weather anomalies and its possible impact on satellite systems; and (3) correlation research and the establishment of physical explanations between ionospheric changes and earthquake cycles, volcanic eruptions, and other natural disasters.

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.
