Remote sensing is one of the most efficient means to capture spatial variabilities of land surface characteristics …

The IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (IEEE GRSL) opened a call for submission of research papers, through a Special Stream devoted to works that focus on
recent technological and methodological advances that aim to foster information extraction, to extract quantitative measurements of land surface and above-ground object properties, and that finally open the field for new areas of investigation. Among ?? submissions, ?? papers were accepted for publication. A closing paper provides a synthesis of the results with regards to the state of the art. Table 1 summarizes the content of the papers in relation to various issues, including the scientific question to be addressed. Table 2 finally provides a listing of the papers, including for each paper the authors, the title and the DOI based web link. The closing paper is in open access.
