Special Issue Information
Extreme weather and climate events over the global ocean, such as tropical cyclones, extratropical storms, and high wind events, have a major impact at the air–sea interface, leading to changes in oceanic conditions. Additionally, the formation of these extreme oceanic events are influenced through energy transfer from the upper ocean to the atmosphere. Geophysical parameters such as sea surface temperature, sea surface heights, and salinity can affect the available ocean heat content, mixed layer depth, and stratification of the topmost layer of ocean, leading to storm intensification or weakening. Warmer ocean temperatures and higher sea levels associated with a warming climate are expected to both increase the intensity and impacts of storms, respectively. New methodological and technological developments have facilitated using both remote sensing and in situ observations to understand these extreme events and what influences them across different temporal and spatial scales for multiple disciplines. This Special Issue aims to publish research addressing the current state of understanding the ocean's role in the occurrence of these extreme events, improving model capabilities of simulating and predicting these extremes, and assessing their socioeconomic impacts in terms of the blue economy which encompasses ocean-based industries, natural assets, and ecosystem services. Studies that cross disciplinary boundaries and use novel approaches to improve process understanding are especially welcome.
For this purpose, authors are invited to submit contributions on, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Factors affecting extreme events over ocean
- Geophysical drivers of extreme events on multiple time scales
- Oceanic responses to extreme events
- The relationship between ocean conditions and extreme event formation.

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.
