Remote Sensing for Assessment of Arctic Sea Ice and Climate Change: in Memorium to Distinguished Professor David G. Barber

Rapid and unprecendented environmental change in the Arctic has led to uncertainty about future climate conditions and impacts on people both in the region, and beyond. Inspired by the need for information about sea ice in often dark and cloudy conditions, microwave remote sensing has played a key role within the Arctic remote sensing community over the past four decades. Traditionally, passive micromave radiometry was used to provide consistent climate data records of sea ice extent and concentration at the pan-Arctic scale, and active synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery enabled detailed visualizations of sea ice and open water conditions at the regional scale for primarily operational purposes. The popularity of these remote sensing technologies for assessment of sea ice in the contexts of ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interaction and Arctic system science, beyond traditional approaches, is greatly attributed to the pioneering work done by Prof. Dr. David G. Barber at University of Manitoba. He passed away on April 15th 2022 at 61 years old.

The Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing aims at publishing a special collection in memorium to Prof. David G. Barber on “Remote Sensing for Assessment of Arctic Sea Ice and Climate Change.” The main objective of this special collection is to promote the recent thematic research and development of various remote sensing applications that address sea ice in various Arctic, climate change, and Arctic system science contexts. Submissions are encouraged that cover a broad range of topics, such as investigations of ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interaction processes,  sea ice and ice sheet interactions, retrieval of sea ice characteristics from remote sensing data, modeling and measurement of electromagnetic interactions with snow-covered sea ice, blending in situ measurements and airborne/spaceborne remote sensing observations of sea ice, investigation of micro-scale snow and sea ice properties that control microwave scattering and emission, and new remote sensing technology development with respect to the Arctic sea ice. Submissions that address other remote sensing domains, such as optical, infrared, hyperspectral, and GNSS reflectometry, are welcomed.

Submission Instructions

All manuscripts will be subjected to peer-review and a standard Article Publication Charge (APC). Research Papers, Review Papers, as well as Research Notes, are all welcome and invited.  Articles can be published in English or in French. All papers are published with the title and abstract in both languages.

Please note that the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing will convert to a full Open Access journal starting  January 2023 (Volume 49). Open Access (OA) means you can publish your research so it is free to access online as soon as it is published, meaning anyone can read and cite your work. The standard article publishing charge (APC) for this journal is US$2,010 / £1,545 / €1,780 plus VAT or other local taxes where applicable in a given country. Members of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) and the Canadian Remote Sensing Society (CRSS-SCT) are eligible to a discount of 30% on the standard APC. Please provide the member discount code when generating your quote through the new Taylor & Francis submission site for the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing. Prospective authors must follow the regular guidelines of the CJRS-JCT available on the Taylor & Francis website at:

https://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=UJRS20&page=instructions

Manuscripts must be submitted by 15 February  2023 via the Taylor&Francis new Submission Portal for the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing under the Special Collection on Remote Sensing for Assessment of Arctic Sea Ice and Climate Change: in Memorium to Professor David G. Barber,”   Papers will be published as soon as they are accepted and be regrouped later in the special collection ©2023.
