Within the framework of the Dragon 4 cooperation, NRSCC and ESA propose to publish the mid-term results as a special publication of the Journal of Remote Sensing. This call for papers concerns the lead and principal investigators of the 76 sub-projects that are investigating the use of ESA, Sentinels, Chinese and Third Party Mission EO data for environmental monitoring.

The co-authored papers will provide the project teams’ results after 2 years of research at the mid term stage of the Dragon 4 collaboration programme. The proceedings will be available to all Dragon 4 cooperation investigators and will be made accessible on-line and as printed proceedings. A team of independent Chinese and European remote sensing experts will be appointed by the Dragon 4 cooperation programme coordinators to undertake a scientific review of the papers.
