Urbanization, dense population and the utilization of natural resources continually exert pressures on the Earth, resulting in increasingly prominent environmental problems. Mountains, fields, rivers, lakes and oceans are the “life community” in which human beings share weal and woe. Monitoring and evaluating the environmental issues related to the above elements is crucial for scientific formulation of regional development strategies, and is also a basic requirement for the concept of sustainable development. Remote sensing technology can obtain information on the Earth's surface over a large area in a short time, and has been widely used in environmental monitoring and assessment. The development of environmental remote sensing is changing quickly in terms of application areas and technical methods. Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard and a practical focus on providing monitoring solutions on land cover and water environments based on remote sensing technology.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
(1) Reviews on remote sensing applications to land cover and water environment monitoring.
(2) Understanding land cover in urban and rural areas with high-resolution remote sensing images;
(3) Change detection and analysis of land cover types and water in urban and rural areas by remote sensing techniques;
(4) Developing remote sensing methods of monitoring the environmental conditions of water;
(5) Identification, assessment and response to disasters associated with land and water (e.g., earthquake, earth surface subsidence, red tide, oil spills in marine environments).

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. Sustainability 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 2400 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.
