Dear Colleagues,

Members of the Int. Working Group on Rotational Seismology.

I would like to inform you that journal "Sensors"


proposed to prepare special issue titled

"/R*otation Rate Sensors and Their Applications*/ "

with *deadline for submissions **31st July 2020*.

The editors of the special issue are:

*Zbigniew ZEMBATY, Felix BERNAUER, Heiner IGEL & Ulrich SCHREIBER*

More information will appear soon on the IWGoRS web site, as well as via 
MDPI journal Sensors

We encourage to submitt the papers as soon as possible because this will 
help to finalize the publication earlier. The tradition of such special 
issues of the "Sensors" jurnal is that the online publication will 
appear earlier, as they are processed and only later the articles will 
form special issue which will include also a printed form when the 
number of papers reach at least 10. Promote this special issue among 
your colleagues

A short description of the planned special issue is shown below

ยท/*Rotation rate sensors are finding more and more applications in 
science and engineering, serving to control vehicle or airship motion. 
In consumer electronics smartphones and smartwatches are controlled with 
respect to their tilt. In modern seismology the measurement of three 
rotations about vertical and horizontal axes combined with classic 
displacement records has many powerful applications. Even small rocking 
of foundations of tall buildings translate into substantial tip 
displacements. All these applications require various rotation rate 
sensors. From small MEMS gyros, fibre-optic gyros and electrochemical 
devices to precise, large ring lasers. The purpose of the special issue 
is to collect papers on rotation rate sensors and their applications, 
with particular attention paid to the areas of modern geophysics, civil 
and seismic engineering as well as mechanical engineering and modern 
geodesy, including also structural health monitoring.*/
