Special Issue "Calibration and Validation of Synthetic Aperture Radar"
A special issue of Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 April 2017)
Dr. Paul Siqueira
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Interferometric SAR have been found to have many scientific applications, ranging from measuring biomass of forests to quantifying surface deformation. The accurate calibration of the image data and the validation of the geophysical products made from SAR and Interferometric SAR is an important task and challenge to the community. New missions with novel mission architectures and objectives will soon join SAR satellites currently in operation. Lessons learned from previous missions will be valuable in the calibration of these future missions.
The techniques and methodologies for the calibration of SAR data and the validation of SAR mission requirements are the subjects of this Special Issue. We would like to invite you to submit articles about your recent research with respect to the following topics:
- Polarimetric calibration
- Wide-swath calibration
- Processor calibration
- Calibration of interferometric SAR data
- Tropospheric and ionospheric corrections
- Calibration of P-band SAR
- Calibration devices
- Validation of geophysical products from SAR
Interested authors should check and follow specific Instructions to Authors, see https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/165068305/Remote_Sensing-Additional_Instructions.pdf.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
