Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.
Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

About This Topic
I am excited to announce the kickoff of the special issue: Hyperspectral Remote Sensing (HRS) on Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research. Although HRS has been widely used in many areas including water quality, agriculture, geology, limnology, and atmospheric sciences since its first introduction in 1983, it has never been such a grand occasion as right now for the applications of HRS because of that hyperspectral sensors have become affordable to individual research entities, and that two recent technological advances - drones (UAV) and artificial intelligence- provide essential support for data acquisition and information extraction. With airplanes still dominating HRS data acquisition, a blooming of drone-based HRS is evident in the current literature. Technical challenges remain as the obstacle in the applications of HRS, which include image noise, band correlation, high dimensionality, absorption feature overlapping, and geometric distortion. I invite you to contribute to this special issue by submitting your recent work as technical articles or review papers of the applications of HRS.
Interesting topics are but not limited to:
1. Satellite-based HRS
2. UAV platforms and sensors
3. Atmospheric correction
4. Data noise reduction
5. Dimension reduction and feature extraction
6. Band ratio and band selection
7. Vegetation phenology and mapping
8. Soil and mineral spectroscopic analyses
9. Water quality mapping
10. Geologic feature mapping
11. Geometric correction of HRS images
12. Deep learning and data mining of HRS data

Multi-rotor and fixed-wing drones are extensively used to collect the data needed for producing large-scale topographic maps and plans. Several types of drone products are available, and the most important one for surveyors is an orthophoto. Flight planning, the quality of the control data, the assessment of drone products, and [...]
Correction of Sunglint Effects in High Spatial Resolution Hyperspectral Imagery Using SWIR or NIR Bands and Taking Account of Spectral Variation of Refractive Index of Water
Received: 26 April 2021; Published: 05 July 2021; doi: 10.21926/aeer.2103017
Passive high spatial resolution hyperspectral and multispectral imaging systems in the solar spectral region from aircraft and satellite platforms are being increasingly used for remote sensing of coastal waters and inland lakes. However, the remotely sensed data are often contaminated by the specular reflection of solar radiation [...]
