About this Research Topic
At present, less than 30% of all researchers worldwide are women and similar ratios are seen in the remote sensing community, particularly in the US. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are discouraging girls and women away from science-related fields, and STEM research in particular. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by UNESCO. In order to change traditional mindsets, gender equality must be promoted, stereotypes defeated, and girls and women should be encouraged to pursue STEM careers.
Therefore, Frontiers in Remote Sensing is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women researchers, scientists, engineers and specialists across all fields of study related to Remote Sensing. The work presented here aims to highlight the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of remote sensing research and presents advances in theory, experiment, and methodology with applications to compelling problems.
Please note: To be considered for this collection, the first or last author should be a researcher who identifies as a woman. If you do not meet these requirements but would still be interested in participating please get in touch with us for consideration at the Frontiers in Remote Sensing editorial office.
