Forthcoming issues:

  • “Microwave Remote Sensing for Land Hydrology Research and Applications”, Guest Editor: Eni Njoku, Mahta Moghaddam, Delwyn Moller, and Noah Molotch. Just released See Issue 1 of Volume 3 Content
  • Temporal Change Observation for Bio-Geophysical Parameters”, Guest Editor: Irena Hajnsek, Jose Moreno, and Malcolm Davidson
  • “Multi-temporal Imagery Analysis: Methods and Applications for Earth Observation”, Guest Editor: Ross S. Lunetta, Daniel L. Civco, Roger L. King, Lorenzo Bruzzone, and John G. Lyon
  • “Earth Observation Sensor Web”, Guest Editor: Liping Di, Terence Van Zyl, Karen Moe.

Jointly sponsored by the IEEE GRSS and ICEO, J-STARS is a quarterly publication of peer-reviewed papers on a variety of application theme in earth observations and remote sensing. Topics can include observations, derived information such as forecast data, simulated information, data assimilation and Earth information techniques to address science and engineering issues of the Earth system.

We invite you to submit individual articles for review at the J-STARS Manuscript Central web site (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jstars). We also welcome proposals for special issues. Details of the proposal process may be obtained by contacting the Editor in Chief or Deputy Editor in Chief. Papers should address current issues and techniques in applied remote and in situ sensing, their integration, and applied modeling and information creation for understanding the Earth.  The technical content of papers must be both new and significant.

IEEE Members may access the Journal through IEEE XPLORE at http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/recentissues.jsp?punumber=4609443. Non-members may access the Journal through an institutional library subscription. We invite you to subscribe to this exciting new journal as part of your IEEE membership.
