Applications of Copernicus Sentinel satellites 

(New Submission Deadline: July 31, 2020)

Copernicus is the European Union’s Earth Observation Programme managed by the European Commission. The main objective of the Copernicus Programme is to transform the vast amount of satellite and in situ data into value-added information by processing and analyzing the data. These value-adding activities are streamlined through six thematic streams: Atmosphere, Marine, Land, Climate, Emergency, and Security. The European Space Agency is developing a new family of missions called Sentinels specifically for the operational needs of Copernicus. In particular, the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service aims to provide geographical information on land cover and on variables related to the vegetation state or the water cycle. It supports applications in a variety of domains such as spatial planning, forest and water management, agriculture and food security. Data provided by Sentinel satellites is also used in a variety of applications related to other thematic areas.

We would like to invite you to submit articles to this special issue regarding your recent algorithms, processing techniques and applications development using Sentinel data for the different Copernicus thematic streams.
