Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic

Satellite remote sensing with a wide range of platforms and on-board sensors has changed our view of Earth and its hydrology remarkably. They offer various type of observations on large scales and now covering more than decades of measurements. The provided spatial and temporal resolutions have revolutionised the way we monitor hydrological processes. Satellite datasets have also provided valuable information over regions with no in-situ network or sparse ground-based measurements. The application of satellite datasets for studying hydrological components has been successfully applied in various spatiotemporal scales. With a temporal resolution of one day to a few weeks and spatial resolution of metres to a few hundred kilometres, satellite products have been remarkably helpful for studying hydrological variations. They can be used to improve and calibrate models at regional, basin-scale, and global scales. Multiple satellite datasets can also be applied separately or simultaneously to improve model simulations by providing measurements of real phenomena. Therefore, there is a great potential in using satellite remote sensing data for hydrological modelling and the topic has attracted a lot of attention. This special issue aims at publishing both innovative and practical solutions in this context. High-quality and original submissions are encouraged to investigate the application of satellite remote sensing in hydrological modelling and also to discuss the current status and challenges in this issue.
