It is with great pleasure that we invite you to contribute to a Special Issue in the journal Remote Sensing  is dedicated to UAS-based studies focusing on environmental monitoring. Particularly, we welcome contributions with:

  • Added value of UAS data in environmental monitoring;
  • Methods and procedures for UAS data processing;
  • Use of UAS in precision farming;
  • Innovative applications of UAS data for rapid environmental mapping and change detection;
  • Advanced applications of UAS data for monitoring vegetation state, crop production, soil water content, river evolution, and stream flow;
  • Potential of different sensors and algorithms for environmental variables.

The deadline for manuscript submission is December 31, 2019.
