Special Issue: "Remote Sensing of Land Change Science with Google Earth 

In the journal: "Remote Sensing of Environment"

A plethora of multi-temporal remote sensing data ranging from local, 
regional to global coverage have been acquired and made available to 
scientific community via many public-domain platforms including Google 
Earth Engine (GEE). It presents us an unprecedented opportunity to 
advance our scientific understanding of various dynamic processes 
associated with earth system, particularly Land Change Science. The use 
of data sets and development of innovative data processing algorithms 
provided by GEE also helps to improve our capabilities to process large 
size of Earth observation data and implement these data to support a 
variety of management decisions. This special issue focusing providing 
the latest progresses in development of incorporating remote sensing 
data and tools developed with GEE. Research papers focusing on both 
methodology and applications by using GEE across different geographic 
scales are welcome.
Potential topics for this special issue may include, but are not limited 
•       Data fusion
•       Multi-temporal image classification
•       Change detection
•       Land-cover and land-use dynamics monitoring and modeling
•       Ecosystem process monitoring and modeling
•       Urban and population dynamics characterization
•       Water resources monitoring and modeling
•       Vegetation dynamics monitoring and modeling
•       Ecosystem response to the climate change
