Oil spill remote sensing has progressed significantly in the past few years. Remote sensing plays an increasingly important role in oil spill response efforts. Through the use of modern remote sensing instrumentation, oil can be monitored in the open ocean on a 24-hour basis. With knowledge of slick locations, response personnel can more effectively commence countermeasures.
There is growing progress in the performance of both strategic sensors such as satellite-borne radars and low-cost sensors, such as visible and infrared cameras. The most progress has been made in the development of use and application software for all tools. We are now able to eliminate noise and then focus on oil spills in many applications.
This Special Issue aims to highlight advances in the development, testing, and use of oil spill remote sensing systems. Topics include but are not limited to:
- New developments in remote sensing
- Software to remove noise and enhance oil spill signals
- Different uses of satellite sensors
- New sensors and testing of sensors
- Use of remote sensing on spills
- Use of remote sensing for illegal discharge detection
- Specialized sensors such as fluorosensors and thickness sensors
- Ship or coastal-mounted sensors
- Airborne sensors and campaigns
- Drone and aerostat-mounted sensors

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.
