Northern higher latitude environments are undergoing marked climate change with associated shifts in the dynamics of phenological and cryological phenomena. Remote Sensing has enabled the study and modelling of many phenomena, including natural hazards, over global, regional and local spatial scales as well as over long temporal scales. However, increasing levels of Earth Observation (EO) data collection, with new sensing possibilities, require, in order to meet new environmental challenges and application possibilities, a matching pace in the development of algorithms for processing and analysing these data. Whilst Nordic countries have long been active in developing sensors for EO, algorithms for data processing, and data applications, a platform for bringing together Nordic work in Remote Sensing has been lacking for several years. The relevance of a platform has even greater timeliness now, with nanosatellites built by several Nordic Universities operational in Space for EO, and new possibilities of developing sensors for better understanding of the changing Nordic environment. This Special Issue on Nordic Remote Sensing, of the International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, will therefore report recent advances in the broad field of Remote Sensing activities undertaken in the Nordic and Arctic countries. The Special Issue will be based mainly on presentations at theNordic Remote Sensing Conference 2019 (NoRSC’19): Data Acquisition, Algorithms and Applications, to be held at Aarhus University, Denmark, from 17-19 September 2019, that meet the requirements of the journal.
