In the last few years, there has been significant growth in the development of satellite-based applications capable of supporting all phases (prevention/prevision, fighting/contrast, and recovery/damage assessment) of the wildfire management. However, in the panorama of scientific publications devoted to this sector of remote sensing, there is a lack of description of applications that were effectively adopted or will be adopted in the near future to support the wildfire management in the real world. Therefore, this Special Issue will cover the following topics:
- Description of satellite remote sensing techniques producing products/services adopted in wildfire management procedures of any fire-fighting organization;
- Description of novel methodologies that are capable, in principle, of overcoming the present satellite-based product limitations, mainly the limitation that prevents their adoption by any institution responsible for forest fire management;
- Applications of multi-sensor data fusion capable of improving the present methodology performances;
- Use of data from next-generation satellite sensors (with improved spatial, spectral, and temporal resolution) that, when applied to well-established methodologies, could enhance the uptake of satellite remote sensing fire information in the operational forest fire management activity;
- Impact analysis of satellite remote sensing information in the management of forest fires.

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.
