Manuscript Topics
Natural phenomena might turn into natural hazards when human population and assets are exposed to them and to natural disasters when population and properties are affected by them. Although our current technology and knowledge to prevent natural hazards is limited or in certain cases even inexistent, the disaster situation can be avoided or at least mitigated by taking appropriate measures.

Remote sensing has become an increasingly common technology within the domain of natural hazards and disasters due to the improvements in geospatial technologies and the availability of no cost satellite imagery. Many recent active and passive remote sensing sensors located on satellite and airborne platforms can provide observations to support studies for the pre-, during- and post-disaster phase.

The focus of this special issue is to host applications of space-borne sensor data to natural hazards and disasters which is an old topic in remote-sensing studies as well as an active research topic today, employing standard or more advanced techniques.

Contributions could be reviews or standard research papers.
