GNSS and SAR Technologies for Atmospheric Sensing

Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to the special issue on GNSS and SAR Technologies for Atmospheric Sensing.

Recent advances in the field of atmosphere and ionosphere sensing by GNSS and SAR technologies were discussed during three meetings, held in February 2016 and October 2016 in Italy hosted by the GEOlab of Politecnico di Milano, and in March 2017 at the Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere(RISH) of Kyoto University. This special issue collects high quality papers that describe the findings reported during the workshop, not limited GNSS and SAR, but including also ground-based radio and optical atmosphere sensing and numerical weather predictions models.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Water vapor and ionospheric map
  • Ionosphere and troposphere monitoring
  • Ground-based radio and optical remote-sensing techniques
  • Numerical models

Submission Instructions

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for Earth, Planets and Space. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Earth, Planets and Space submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the appropriate thematic series in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series on GNSS and SAR Technologies for Atmospheric Sensing. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.

Deadline for submissions: 10 May, 2017
