Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL)

The IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS is a monthly 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.

Fast Multifeature Joint Sparse Representation for Hyperspectral Image Classification

Since hyperspectral images (HSIs) usually have complex content and chaotic background, multiple kinds of features would be helpful for the classification task. Recently, representation-based methods with multifeature combination learning have been prop…

A Phase Error Estimation Method for Broad Beam High-Frequency Radar

High-frequency radar is an effective instrument for ocean state surveillance. However, phase response differences in antenna elements, cables and receivers cause distortions in beam pattern, resulting in the loss of azimuth resolution. In this letter, …

Relative Ionospheric Ranging Delay in LEO GNSS Oceanic Reflections

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reflectometry leverages signals of opportunity to remotely sense the Earth’s surface for a variety of science investigations. However, ionospheric refraction affects GNSS reflections detected at low Earth orbit…

Role of the Orbital Tube in Interferometric Spaceborne SAR Missions

The orbit for Earth observation satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) missions is maintained within an Earth-fixed orbital tube to ensure ground-track coverage repeatability and, consequently, to enable repeat-pass interferometric compatibility betw…

Mapping Localized Patterns of Classification Accuracies Through Incorporating Image Segmentation

Land use land cover (LULC) maps are essential for numerous applications, such as urban growth analysis, deforestation, etc. The accuracy of these LULC maps is often assessed using global indicators, and its spatial variations are neglected. To address …

Feature Extraction Using Weighted Training Samples

Feature extraction using weighted training (FEWT) samples is proposed in this letter. Different spectral bands (features) play different roles in identification of land-cover classes. In the FEWT, the relative importance of each feature of a training s…

Experimental Validation of the Quadratic Forward Model for RF Tomography

An effective way to solve the inverse scattering from dielectric objects relies on the Born approximation, which allows to linearize the problem and retrieve a qualitative reconstruction of the targets in terms of location and extent. The limits of the…
