Mountain ecosystems are among the most sensitive to global warming, increasing climate variability, related hazardous processes, and resulting impacts and future risks.


  • Contribute to a better understanding of the dynamic and complex interconnections between hazards, underlying vulnerabilities, disaster management, and resulting impacts and risks in mountains.
  • Present insights on how to improve disaster management across the entire cycle from prevention to recovery.

Papers must be submitted until 1st September 2021.

The Special Issue "Spatial-Temporal Monitoring of Environmental and Ecological Processes Using LiDAR" of the journal "Remote Sensing" aims to concentrate on "innovative applications using various LiDAR sensors to monitor spatial and temporal changes in environmental and ecological processes". Submissions of both research and review papers are possible.

Submission deadline: 31.03.2022

The 'water' journal is planning a special issue of the MDPI WATER on Recent Advances in Flood Hazard and Risk Science. Therefore, its opening a call for papers to adapt and develop new methods and techniques to properly face the challenges of a new era, where capabilities for monitoring and modelling Earth processes have dramatically increased.

Scientific contributions should include (but not restricted to): theoretical and applied developments of hydrologic and hydrodynamic modelling including morphodynamics; post-event surveys; floods and related processes monitoring; flood frequency analysis; data mining and machine learning tools for hazard, exposure and vulnerability analysis; social networks and big data analysis for risk analysis and model calibration; palaeohydrology and geochronological dating techniques; geographical information systems; risk perception, risk communication, and dissemination.

You may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline (30.09.2021), submissions will be published immediately after acceptance in an ongoing basis. Water is fully open access (unlimited and free access by readers).
