Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Forecasting volcanic hazards presents extraordinarily challenging problems, for reasons that span from the inherent complexity characterizing volcanic phenomena to the magnitude of associated risks. However, there is significant progress in forecasting volcanic hazards and, in specific circumstances, in making predictions. Improvements in forecasting are closely related to a wealth of data from enhanced monitoring techniques, such as satellite observations, and tremendous advances in computing power, leading to the increased use of data-driven approaches, including artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, to solve problems of volcanic hazards. Machine learning, a type of AI in which computers learn from data, is gaining importance in volcanology, not only for monitoring purposes (i.e., in real-time) but also for later hazards analysis (e.g., modelling tools). Looking to the future, AI models can be combined with physical constraints to bridge the gap between data-driven methods and physical modeling and to increase the interpretability of AI predictions, offering an alternative path to deal with the strongly nonlinear and time-dependent character of volcanic phenomena. This Special Issue invites contributions (original research articles and reviews are welcome) on the improvement of traditional ground-based volcano monitoring systems with technological innovation from satellite remote sensing, and of computational methods, blending deep-learning, data-driven approaches, and physics-based simulations, for developing a better understanding of volcanic hazards.

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.
