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, case report, 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.

Indexing: COPE.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 11 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in 2020, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

Dear colleagues,

remote observation and monitoring of the sea surface is a powerful and effective tool for the description of marine phenomena. The growing availability of orbiting sensors in the optical and microwave bands allows a synoptic description of the phenomena occurring on the sea surface such as, for example, the characterization of wave and wind fields, the presence and distribution of sea ice, extent and consistency of algal bloom and pollutants. For a quantitative characterization of the phenomena under study, measurements with dedicated instrumentation installed on buoys or platforms of occurrence allow to assess and calibrate the remote observations. Therefore, the purpose of the special issue “Remote sensing and oceans” is to collect innovative and original papers that demonstrate the potential and effectiveness of electromagnetic sensors, installed onboard satellite, aerial, and proximity platforms such as ground radars and drones, to describe the physical, chemical, biological properties of the sea surface.
