Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Climate change, air quality, and environmental degradation are the main societal challenges in the twenty-first century. In order to address these challenges, we need increased information on the Earth’s system (the cryosphere, the ecosystems, the hydrosphere, and the solid Earth, as well as the oceans). A crucial component of Earth System Monitoring is satellite observations. Current satellite technology provides relevant information on atmospheric constituents, sea surface temperatures, soil moisture, snow cover, etc.

The objective of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art applied research using satellite remote sensing technology for Earth System Monitoring. We welcome studies on the application or assimilation of satellite observations in models and research presenting the most recent advances in:

  • land reanalysis,
  • cloud properties,
  • air temperature analyses,
  • coupled land–atmosphere assimilation,
  • numerical weather prediction,
  • hydrological forecast,
  • ocean dynamics,
  • carbon cycle monitoring,
  • etc.

Dr. Stephan Havemann
Guest Editor

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.
