CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: NLT Chief Scientist Serves a Guest Editor of Two Remote Sensing journal special issues

NLT Chief Scientist Ran Goldblatt will be serving as a guest editor for two special issues of the prestigious Remote Sensing journal. The journal is currently accepting manuscript submissions to be considered for publication in each of the issues. 

The first special issue is entitled  “Remote Sensing Measurements for Monitoring Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. As satellite data becomes ever more accessible and frequent, it is now possible not only to better understand how Earth is changing, but also to utilize these insights to improve decision making, guide policy, deliver services, and promote better-informed governance. The journal will explore the new possibilities that can emerge for harnessing this data for a better understanding about our changing world. The deadline for all potential contributors to submit their work is March 31, 2021.

The second special issue is entitled “Remote Sensing of Night-Time Light“. Night-time lights can indicate the characteristics of a wide range of human-related aspects, from economic activity and development, urbanization processes, changes in GDP, migration patterns, economic impacts of conflicts, or the impacts of natural hazards on vulnerable populations. The issue will bring together original and novel studies demonstrating the applications of remotely sensed night-time lights in a wide range of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary domains. The deadline for all potential contributors to submit their work is December 31, 2021.

All manuscripts will be subject to peer-review. To submit your manuscript please visit the journal’s web-page here
