National Remote Sensing Bulletin (Bimonthly, Started in 1997) is a peer reviewed academic periodical in English which publishes papers of outstanding scientific and technological work bimonthly.

National Remote Sensing Bulletin  serves the remote sensing community with the publication of results on theory, science, applications and technology of remote sensing of Earth resources and environment. Thoroughly interdisciplinary, this journal focuses on new concepts, new results, and new development of remote sensing. This journal publishes on Basic theory of remote sensing, remote sensing technology and applications. The emphasis of the journal is on biophysical and quantitative approaches to remote sensing at local to global scales. Areas of interest include, but are not necessarily restricted to:

–quantitative and Inversion– agriculture, forestry and range
– biophysical-spectral models
– ecology
– earth and environmental science
– geography and land information
– geology and geosciences
– hydrology and water resources
– remote sensing image processing and analysis
– atmospheric science and meteorology
– oceanography

– geomantic

– disaster monitoring

– Geographic Information System, GIS and GNSS

– Sensor systems and spectral-radiometric measurements

In addition to original research papers, comprehensive review articles are welcome. Brief papers containing significant new data or techniques may be published as Short Communications
