Call for Papers: BSSA Special Issue on Rotational Seismology and Engineering

The Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) will publish a
special issue on rotational seismology and engineering applications in May
2009. This special issue will be dedicated to the emerging field of
seismological research on all aspects of rotational ground motions
(including theory, instrumentation, observation, and interpretation) from
teleseismic and local earthquakes, as well as on rotations in structural
response. The editors welcome the submission of original articles, short
technical notes, in-depth and up-to-date reviews, and tutorials. Electronic
supplements are encouraged for this issue because they will provide online
access to supporting materials including data, software, and other

Authors considering submitting papers to this special issue are encouraged
to contact one of the guest editors:

   1. William H. K. Lee, U.S. Geological Survey (lee at usgs.gov) will handle
papers on rotational motions in the near-field, and reviews and tutorials on
rotational seismology in general. Authors who wish to write reviews or
tutorials must contact Dr. Lee before submitting papers.

   2. Mehmet Çelebi, U.S. Geological Survey (celebi at usgs.gov) will oversee
papers on observation and interpretation of rotational motions in engineered

   3. Maria Todorovska, University of Southern California (mtodorov at usc.edu)
will cover theoretical aspects and numerical simulations of rotations in
structural response.

   4. Heiner Igel, University of Munich (igel at geophysik.uni-muenchen.de)
will be responsible for papers on rotational motions in the far-field.

Submissions to this special issue will be accepted starting in mid-April
2008. The deadline for submission is 31 May 2008. Manuscripts should be
prepared as described at http://www.seismosoc.org/publications/bssa.html and
in recent issues of BSSA. Please note that the submission process is likely
to change before mid-April; authors should recheck this information as the
submission period approaches. Questions may be addressed to Carol Mark,
managing editor, at bssa at lanl.gov.
