Remote Sensing in Earth Systems Sciences is a quarterly scientific journal that publishes articles featuring the use of remote sensing data to study Earth processes. The journal’s interdisciplinary approach aims to include all aspects of the Earth Sciences including Atmospheric Sciences, Biogeosciences, Climate/Climate Change, Hydrology, the Cryosphere and Oceans, while placing great emphasis on articles that exist on the border of, or even transcend subfields.

In addition, the journal’s scope encompasses everything from drone research to the latest governmental satellite missions. Articles that demonstrate uses and techniques for managing the “big data” generated are welcome.

To remain on the cutting edge of the field, Remote Sensing in Earth Systems Sciences prefers medium-length articles that can be written and reviewed in a timely manner but retain a high level of detail and depth, although longer articles, as well as letters, are also considered.
