The IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS is a quarterly publication for short papers (maximum length 5 pages) addressing new ideas and formative concepts in remote sensing as well as important new and timely results and concepts.
Papers should relate to the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as applied to sensing the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, and the processing, interpretation, and dissemination of this information.
The technical content of papers must be both new and signiﬁcant. Experimental data must be complete and include sufficient description of experimental apparatus, methods, and relevant experimental conditions. GRSL encourages the incorporation of “extended objects” or “multimedia” such as animations to enhance the shorter papers. As soon as papers are accepted and materials are available at IEEE, they will appear online through the IEEE digital library Xplore. A paper version of each paper will appear in January, April, July, and October.
Editor: Prof. Paolo Gamba
Institution: University of Pavia
Bio: Paolo Gamba is currently Associate Professor of Telecommunications at the University of Pavia, Italy. He received the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering “cum laude” from the University of Pavia, Italy, in 1989, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the same University in 1993.

He is a Senior Member of IEEE, and since January 2009 he serves as Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters. He will be the Technical Co-Chair of the 2010 IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium scheduled for July 2010 in Honolulu, Hawaii, and served as Chair of the Data Fusion Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society from October 2005 to May 2009.
His long time commitment is the technical organization of the URBAN (now JURSE) Workshops from 2001 to 2009. The last event he chaired is the 2009 Joint Urban Remote Sensing Symposium, held in Shanghai in May 2009.
GRSL Impact Factor
GRSL has a 2010 Impact Factor of 1.42 and an average turnaround time close to 30 days. Moreover, as soon as papers are accepted and materials are available at IEEE, they will appear online through the IEEE digital library Xplore.
