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):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a variety of article types (Original Research, Review, Communication, Opinion, 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

Dear colleagues,

remote observation and monitoring of the sea surface is a powerful and effective tool for the description of marine phenomena. The growing availability of orbiting sensors in the optical and microwave bands allows a synoptic description of the phenomena occurring on the sea surface such as, for example, the characterization of wave and wind fields, the presence and distribution of sea ice, extent and consistency of algal bloom and pollutants. For a quantitative characterization of the phenomena under study, measurements with dedicated instrumentation installed on buoys or platforms of occurrence allow to assess and calibrate the remote observations. Therefore, the purpose of the special issue “Remote sensing and oceans” is to collect innovative and original papers that demonstrate the potential and effectiveness of electromagnetic sensors, installed onboard satellite, aerial, and proximity platforms such as ground radars and drones, to describe the physical, chemical, biological properties of the sea surface.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted through the LIDSEN Submission System. Detailed information on manuscript preparation and submission is available in the Instructions for Authors. All submitted articles will be thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process and will be processed following the Editorial Process and Quality Control policy. Upon acceptance, the article will be immediately published in a regular issue of the journal and will be listed together on the special issue website, with a label that the article belongs to the Special Issue. LIDSEN distributes articles under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY 4.0) License in an open-access model. The authors own the copyright to the article, and the article can be free to access, distribute, and reuse provided that the original work is correctly cited.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). Research articles and review articles are highly invited. Authors are encouraged to send the tentative title and abstract of the planned paper to the Editorial Office ( for record. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Office.

Welcome your submission!

Coral Reef Mapping Using Remote Sensing Techniques and a Supervised Classification Algorithm

Received: 28 August 2021;  Published: 04 November 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2104028


The vitality of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is threatened by many human-made impacts. Monitoring this ecosystem makes it possible to study the general condition and the health of the GBR. However, due to the large extent of the GBR and limited accessibility in the ocean environment, mapping and monitoring this ecosystem has been [...]

Oil Spill Detection Using Satellite Imagery

Received: 13 August 2021;  Published: 14 October 2021;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2104024


Since oil exploration began, oil spills have become a serious problem. When drilling for oil, there is always a risk of an oil spill. With the new development of technology over the years, oil spill detection has become much easier making the clean-up of a spill to happen much faster reducing the risk of a large spread. In this [...]
