Hi All

We would like to invite interest people to  contribute publication to  a special issue on Coral Reef Dynamics for the Remote Sensing Journal, with papers due later this year.

Instructions for submission are at  www.mdpi.com/journal/remotesensing/special_issues/coral_reefMonitoring<http://www.mdpi.com/journal/remotesensing/special_issues/coral_reefMonitoring>

We invite you to submit to this special issue on one or more of the following topics:
-  Measuring and modelling coral reef primary production and metabolism;
- Measuring and mapping coral reef form, structure and resultant hydrodynamic processes;
- Mapping reef composition from site to oceanic basin scales;
- What is "coral reef condition" and how is it mapped and monitored?
- Mapping from the high tide mark  to the edge of the continental shelf;
- The roles of  instrument networks, citizen science and crowd sourced data collection and analysis;
- Management, research and industry examples using remote sensing for coral reefs; and
- New developments for integrating field and image based data set to scale-up estimates of coral reef biophysical properties.
