Special Issue Information
Despite the global significance of the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre for energy and matter transformations and its role in the oceanic carbon cycle, it is grossly undersampled and not well characterized with respect to ecosystem structure and dynamics. In addition, marine heat waves are now a subject of increased attention in the setting of climate change and impacts in the ecosystem, and satellite remote sensing plays a significant role in monitoring their evolution and uncovering their origins and impacts. On the other hand, the equatorial band of the Pacific Ocean has been a major challenge to understanding ocean dynamics and climate, being a challenge for ocean remote sensing and theoretical physical oceanography. Furthermore, propagation of swell waves and their interaction with the air–sea system has been in the spotlight in some particular areas of the Pacific and may have influence on primary production.
The general aim of this Special Issue (SI) is to explore where water properties are transported at the ocean surface, driving weather and climate and shaping ecosystems and biodiversity. We invite papers that address the quantification of key processes that drive exchanges between atmosphere and ocean and the penetration toward the subsurface ocean that define the climate system on a wide range of time scales through the storage and transport of heat and carbon. We seek papers with approaches to use remote sensing data to study near surface phenomena and construct indicators that describe aspects of ecosystem dynamics in the North Pacific, the equatorial band of the Pacific Ocean, and its marginal seas (e.g., South China Sea, Gulf of California).

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 2500 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.
