The open-access MDPI journal Remote Sensing is seeking submissions for an upcoming special issue titled “Fires on Forest Environments”. Manuscript submissions are due October 31, 2020.
From the call for papers:
The increase frequency and damage that fires cause in natural ecosystem is becoming a global fingerprint of climate change. Recent fires in California, Europe and the Amazon basin are a clear example of the need for accurate monitoring and assessment of conditions of fires and the conditions that can cause then, respectively. In this special issue, we would like to explore the role of fires and its monitoring and assessment via remote sensing technologies. We invite those researchers interested on the topics above to submit their contributions. As climate change becomes more predominant, and ecosystems become more responsive to natural and human induced fires, there is a pressing need to build consensus and knowledge base on fire remote-sensing topics. Therefore, regular, methods and synthesis papers are invited.
