Call for Papers: SI on Decarbonisation Trend Monitoring of Cities Using Remote Sensing Imagery

Special Issue on Decarbonisation Trend Monitoring of Cities Using Remote Sensing Imagery

Aims and Scope
Although environmental experts find space technology to be of great assistance, their role in monitoring city greenhouse gas emissions is limited to quantifying those emissions. Satellite technology cannot advance the decarburization objective on its own. Municipalities must develop regional techniques to cut carbon emissions in order to accomplish this goal. The satellite measurements can show whether corrective activities are working once these approaches have been put into place. This special issue is based on ongoing research conducted in collaboration with municipalities to identify the origin of emissions within urban systems and potential reduction strategies. Both the benefits of remote sensing for decarbonizing areas and the effects of specific carbon mitigation measures are covered. There is a lot of promise in using satellite measurements and remote sensing to help local governments plan, map, simulate, and create low-carbon infrastructure. Converting satellite-derived data into the kind of knowledge that enables precinct communities and other stakeholders to make decisions that lead to low carbon outcomes at the precinct size is the difficult task.
