Technical Abstract: This paper summarizes the key questions and issues discussed in three review panels in the 9th International Symposium on Physical Measurements and Signatures in Remote Sensing (ISPMSRS) held in Oct. 2005 at Beijing. These three panels focused on remote sensing systems and sensors, modeling and inversion, and remote sensing applications. Some emerging issues in land remote sensing are further elaborated, including sensor networks, modeling complex landscapes, machine learning techniques for inversion, and spatial scaling. It also briefly outlines the papers included in this special issue.
