A Special Issue of the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing [CJRS], Vol. 28,
No. 2, April 2002

This special journal issue features 18 full-length papers, research notes
and technical notes authored solely by women scientists in different
disciplinary fields of remote sensing. The issue includes articles from the
disciplines of land, atmosphere and oceans and covers topics on theory,
applications and operations.  Contributing authors are from Africa, Asia,
Europe and both North and South America.

This special issue is seen as a chance for additional networking and
mentoring by raising the visibility of women in science by showing that
women create, lead, support and collaborate with each other in scientific
research.  Forwards have been provided from Canada (Assistant Deputy
