    The Asian monsoon system is one of the most complicated weather and climate systems in the world, involving interactions between land, ocean, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere, with the impact of the biosphere becoming more involved as a result of various human activities. A number of recent research programmes have been devoted to understanding this complex monsoon system, for example the Monsoon Asian Hydro-Atmosphere Scientific Research and Prediction Initiative (MAHASRI), and the Asian Monsoon Years (AMY 2007–2012) in the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and these efforts have done much to advance our understanding of the Asian monsoon hydroclimate.

    In this SPEPS article collection we invite authors to contribute innovative research or reviews on the Asian monsoon hydroclimate. The general scientific areas that we are interested in are (i) monsoon variability and changes in diurnal, intra-seasonal, seasonal, inter-annual and multi-decadal time-scales; and (ii) past and future climate changes, their impact and adaptation. Both observation and modeling studies are welcome.

    Recent technological developments in high-definition, or high-resolution data collection of earth surface topography and geophysical properties have led to advances in measuring earth surface processes and dynamics. Accordingly, the theory, acquisition, processing, modeling and analysis of such high-definition data are progressing rapidly. Furthermore, there is increasing demand for well-documented datasets and open-source tools, which are crucial for further advances in geoscience and the instrumentation. With such advances, numerous solutions will be provided for issues in human geosciences, such as geomorphological or hydrological responses to environmental changes, tectonic or volcanic surface and subsurface deformations, submarine morphology and ecology, conservations for archaeological and cultural heritages, and more effective disaster controls.

    In this special issue SPEPS, we invite authors to contribute innovative research or reviews on high-definition topographic and geophysical data. A suitable contribution would consider both the technical issues and geoscientific applications of high-definition topographic and geophysical data. The approaches may include, but are not limited to, laser scanning, SfM-MVS (structure-from-motion multi-view stereo) photogrammetry, GNSS (global navigation satellite system) positioning, SAR (synthetic aperture radar) interferometry, multi-beam sonar, geomagnetic and electromagnetic sensors, based on terrestrial (fixed or mobile), instrumentation or survey watercraft (unmanned or manned), submersible vehicles (unmanned underwater vehicle or manned), and aerial (unmanned or manned airborne) platforms.
