The University of Nottingham, U.K., has announced a Special Issue in Remote Sensing: “Earth Observation Technology Cluster: Innovative Sensor Systems for Advanced Land Surface Studies.”

The deadline for manuscript submissions is May 31, 2012.

This Special Issue (pdf) focuses on innovative technology used in remote sensing of the terrestrial or land surface. The Earth Observation Technology Cluster is an initiative to promote development and communication in this field.

The scope of the Special Issue covers the full range of remote sensing operation, from new platform and sensor development, through image retrieval and analysis, to data applications and environmental modelling.

Example topics include:

‰Û¢ Novel remote sensing platforms such as unmanned aerial vehicles;

‰Û¢ Emerging instrumentation such as fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and terrestrial LiDAR;

‰Û¢ Modern image retrieval and storage techniques such as networked data transmission and distributed computing;

‰Û¢ New image analysis and modelling approaches such as hypertemporal observation; and,

‰Û¢ Contemporary and significant application areas such as circumpolar and cryospheric remote sensing.

Research papers and innovative review papers are invited on any topic under the broad theme of technological developments in remote sensing of the land surface.

A limited amount of funding may be available.
