Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a seven-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first five digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the seven-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first five digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

This proceedings volume contains papers presented during the conference on Remote Sensing for Agriculture, Ecosystems, and Hydrology. The conference was part of the International Symposium on Remote Sensing sponsored by SPIE—The International Society for Optical Engineering. The symposium was held at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel, Warsaw, Poland, from 11th to 14th of September 2017.

Approximately 35 oral and 15 poster papers were presented during this year’s conference, covering a broad range of topics in the field of remote sensing applications in environmental science.

The program was organized into 11 sessions according to major themes, namely Surface and Groundwater Hydrology (2), Hydrology and Precipitation, Evapotranspiration and Land Surface Temperature, Vegetation Monitoring (2), Soil Monitoring, Forestry, Evapotranspiration and Irrigation, Vegetation Monitoring in Agriculture (2), and finally a Joint Session on Radar with the “Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring” Conference.

The poster presentations also had good representation from the above-mentioned themes. The presentations described both fundamental and applications-based research activities including modelling, laboratory and field experiments, and operational applications.

Our appreciation and gratitude goes also to the presenters for their efforts and to the participants for their insightful questions and discussions. Special thanks are also due to the host city for the excellent venue and to all the SPIE organizational staff for their support prior to, during, and after the symposium. We look forward to an even more successful conference in 2018 in Berlin, Germany.
