Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

Due to economic growth throughout the globe, populations living in rural areas have migrated to urban areas. The population in urban areas have increased and some of the cities in the world have become mega cities (more than 10 million people). In the last three decades, urbanization has increased throughout the globe, enhancing the demand for vehicles, energy, industry, etc. The population explosion has impacted land use and land cover affecting natural resources, hydrological cycle, environment, atmospheric pollution, air quality, etc. The land cover, forests, ponds, grasslands, agricultural lands have been replaced by buildings, roads, gardens, parks, sport fields, etc. Such changes affected the recharge of ground water and enhanced the frequency of flash floods that severely affected the ecological conditions. Urbanization is the real cause of poor air quality, which has adversely affected human health and visibility and also enhanced urban heat islands. Such changes have played an important role in climate change at the local, regional and global scale. The Special Issue on “Remote Sensing of the Urban Climate” invites papers dealing with satellite observations, data analysis and modelling associated with urban pollution, environment, ecology, dynamics of pollutants, hydrological cycle, extreme events on the changing urban climate. The Special Issue will also consider papers related to human health and mortality associated with the urban climate and pollution.
