Special Issue "Advances in Remote Sensing-based Disaster Monitoring and Assessment"
A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292). Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2018
Special Issue Information
Extreme weather/climate events have been increasing partly due to on-going climate change. Such events become disasters where people live. Disaster monitoring and assessment are the most benefited areas by recent advances in satellite and airborne remote sensing. Consistent efforts in finding ways to operationally-monitor and assess disastrous events, such as floods, drought, heatwave, and forest fires, are consistently rewarded by integrating advanced remote sensing. Novel techniques in image analysis and the scheduled launch of a series of new sensors with enhanced specifications are also promising for disaster monitoring and assessment, which aims at reducing the risks caused by disasters.
Towards this end, a Special Issue of Remote Sensing on “Advances in Remote Sensing-based Disaster Monitoring and Assessment” has recently been announced. This Special Issue focuses on disaster monitoring and assessment caused by natural hazards, such as drought, floods, heatwave, wildfires, and landslides. You are encouraged to contribute to this Special Issue by submitting your latest research and development in the areas of, but not limited to:
• Multi-sensor data fusion for disaster monitoring
• Satellite-based hazard/disaster forecasting
• Novel techniques for remote sensing-based disaster assessment
• New approaches on vulnerability assessment for disasters
• Remote sensing-based systems for disaster monitoring and forecasting
