Call for cryospheric contributions to special issue of PiPG on SfM-driven advances in the geosciences
Please consider submitting to a special issue of Progress in Physical Geography, entitled: 'Advances in physical geography and environmental science through Structure from Motion (SfM) photogrammetry'.
The aim and scope of the issue are found at the end of this message.
There are an ever-growing number of cryospheric scientists using SfM techniques to really drive the science forward. It's exactly this type of work that we're looking to showcase, and we're keen to ensure that as many disciplines as possible are represented in the special issue.
The call has been open for a little while, and the deadline for submissions is the end of August. However, there is likely to be some flexibility on this, so please don't be put off if you have something that won't be submission-ready by the impending deadline, but is likely to be within the next month or so. Enquiries in the first instance should be directed to the Lead Editor, Karen Anderson ([hidden email]). The remainder of the editorial team includes myself, Mike James (Lancaster) and James Brasington (QMUL).
All submissions will be subject to the normal peer-review process and should be submitted through the normal PiPG submission portal. Please identify that you wish your submission to be considered for the special issue in your cover letter.
Special Issue aims and scope:
With SfM photogrammetry flourishing in the environmental sciences as a new tool for fine-grained landscape modelling, Progress in Physical Geography invites contributions evidencing the cutting-edge advances being enabled. The aim of this special issue is to demonstrate the diversity of ways in which geographical knowledge can progress when SfM methodologies are exploited. We are particularly interested in manuscripts describing novel applications, with a key objective of this special issue to describe high-quality interdisciplinary science, of direct relevance to quantitative physical geography.
