Special Issue Information
The observation of the ocean current is necessary for the research of oceanography. However, in field observation, restrictions such as spatial resolution and observation frequency are very large.
Ocean current observation by remote sensing technology using radio waves is mainly limited to the sea surface. However, it has overcome the problems of field observation and made a great contribution to oceanography. For example, it has become possible to accurately measure the sea surface height using altimeters and to estimate geostrophic currents.
In the coastal area, it became possible to observe the ocean current with high spatial resolution through high-frequency ocean radars. In addition, there are techniques to estimate the current from sea surface temperature by radiometers and techniques to measure the current from microwave Doppler radars.
In this Special Issue, we invite a wide range of research on ocean current observation by remote sensing, from theory, engineering, and validation to application to oceanography.

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.
