Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Against the backdrop of global climate change, the impact of changes in the marine environment on the survival of humankind can no longer be ignored. Various anomalies, such as a rising sea level, abnormal currents, extreme weather, and changes in sea ice, have emerged, further affecting the dynamics of the coastline. Monitoring and prediction techniques for these phenomena and changes are crucial; from sea level change to internal wave and tidal modelling, the accurate monitoring and control of the sea surface is the key to studying ocean modelling and coastal dynamics at different scales. Satellite radar altimetry provides a unique sea level dataset with almost global coverage, including the monitoring of ocean circulation changes, sea level changes, extreme events (storm surges and hurricanes), waves and swells. New coastal altimetry techniques, algorithm improvements and corrections, and new applications continue to be the focus of research in order to extract ocean information more accurately.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to compile original research articles on the application of satellite radar altimetry to sea level change, changes in coastal dynamics and marine geological monitoring, as well as the development and application of satellite altimetry products for coastal monitoring. Further technological innovations and in-depth research on satellite radar altimetry, including the optimization of algorithms, models, etc., are welcome. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Application of satellite radar altimetry to coastal dynamics monitoring;
  • Assessment of coastal altimetry;
  • Calibration and validation of coastal altimetry data;
  • Marine geoid/bathymetry modeling;
  • Altimetry in ice sheet monitoring;
  • Radar altimetry for studies on coastal circulation variability, extreme events, assimilation of data in models.

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.
