Frontiers in Remote Sensing is an open-access journal that publishes high-quality research across all aspects of remote sensing science and technology, from passive/active sensor design, validation/calibration to the processing/interpretation of remotely sensed data. The journal focuses on physical and quantitative approaches to remote sensing of the land, oceans, biosphere, atmosphere and space at local and global scales.
Remote sensing, an essential part of the Global Observing System that provides inputs for a wide range of applications, is experiencing a new era with the launch of space missions that provide novel data requiring the development of new algorithms and the improvement of existing ones.
In this context, Frontiers in Remote Sensing brings to the scientific community the publication of original high-quality research across all aspects of remote sensing theory, applications and technology. The journal focuses on physical and quantitative approaches to remote sensing of the land, oceans, biosphere, atmosphere and space at local and global scales. Areas of interest include, but are no limited to:
• Surface radiation and inversion modelling
• Multispectral and hyperspectral Remote Sensing and Imaging Spectroscopy
• Multiangular and Multitemporal measurements
• Data Analysis Methods, Classification and Data Mining
• Remote sensing of Essential Climate Variables
• Carbon and Water cycle observation and modelling
• Hydrology and water resources
• Assessment of natural resources with remote sensing
• Land cover/use and change
• Urban Remote Sensing
• Atmospheric constituents
• Aerosols and Clouds
• Oceanic Applications
• Geological Applications
• Unmaned Aerial Systems and Airborne Platforms
• Remote Sensing contribution to Sustainable development Goals
• Recognition, modelling and assessment of natural hazards
• From R&D to Operational Agricultural Monitoring
• Ice Sheets and Glaciers
• Remote sensing for forest and vegetation
• Sensor calibration, atmospheric correction, and product validation
• Passive and active microwave data processing and applications
• Laser remote sensing
• Passive and active fluorescence
• Earth Observation Missions & Services
The open-access model developed by Frontiers offers a fast, efficient, timely and dynamic alternative to traditional publication formats. The journal has 6 specialty sections at the first tier, each acting as an independent journal with a full editorial board. The traditional peer-review process is adapted to guarantee fairness and efficiency using a thorough paperless process, with real-time author-reviewer-editor interactions, the collaborative review mandates to maximize quality, and reviewer disclosure after article acceptance. While maintaining a rigorous peer-review, this system allows for a process whereby accepted articles are published online on average 90 days after submission.
