Advances in Hyper spectral Remote Sensing for Earth Monitoring and Mapping

Click here to visit the French translation.

Hyperspectral Remote Sensing (HRS) is an emerging, multidisciplinary paradigm with a variety of applications that are built on the principle of material spectroscopy, radiative transfer, imaging spectroscopy. HRS acquires the digital imagery of the materials in many narrow contiguous spectral bands. HRS provides high spatial/spectral resolution data for each picture element (pixel). Targets are identified based on the physical information extracted from the spectrum and are quantitatively analyzed in the spatial view. The most crucial and efficient advantage of HRS is that it has the ability of acquiring quantitative information from many points on the ground at the same instant of time. Pertaining to this multidisciplinary paradigm, HRS has several applications that lead to improvements in our digital lives.

Utilizing HRS for monitoring and mapping the changes in different areas around the Earth will plays an extensive and significant role in oceanography, agriculture, atmosphere, geology, hydrology, etc. In oceanography, it helps to classify and quantify the complex oceanic environments and it also develops optically based chemical sensors for monitoring the ecologically important nutrients and potentially harmful pollutants. Moreover, the high spectral resolution of HRS has an extra intelligence of capturing and discriminating subtle differences among crop types and also advancement in understanding the changes in biochemical and biophysical attributes of the crops. Further in the area of Hydrology, HRS has been used for monitoring the water quality conditions of open water aquatic ecosystems and also identifies the various water quality parameters like temperature, chlorophyll phosphorus, turbid. Considering the smart technologies of HRS, it facilitates the characterization, and mapping of soil on a regional scale which includes soil mixture monitoring, weather monitoring, and atmospheric monitoring. Like all other existing remote sensing systems, HRS also faces some challenges for the optimal utilization of the system in various areas. The crucial factors to be considered while designing the HRS for Earth monitoring and mapping is that it requires professional manpower to operate, process the data and it also requires a huge implementation cost. To overcome these challenges, various researches are explored to investigate the implementation of HRS for Earth monitoring and solutions for optimal usage of the system. This special issue aims to invite researchers from various geographical locations to contribute their original ideas and analysis related to recent advances in hyper spectral remote sensing for monitoring and mapping the world we live in.

The following topics are welcome, but not restricted to:

  • Advanced techniques and methods for an efficient HRS
  • Role of Robotics and automation in Hyperspectral Remote Sensing system.
  • Effective and optimal use of HRS for estimating the amount of toxic in cyanobacterial blooms.
  • Hydrological discrimination using Hyperspectral Remote Sensing
  • Impact of Hyperspectral Remote Sensing in Agriculture for finding the relationship among the crop types.
  • Monitoring forest fire and volcanic eruptions using Hyperspectral Remote Sensing.
  • Optimization technique for resource planning based on HRS.
  • Effective use of HRS for monitoring the dry areas for the water resources management
  • Opportunities of the Internet of Things and Hyperspectral Remote Sensing in Earth’s atmosphere
  • A study on optimal use of HRS for earth sciences
