Dear All,

Special Issue planned for publications in the field of rotational
seismology. Contributions are sought for the journal/Sensors
<https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors>. /The deadline//for submission is
July 31, 2020. *Please indicate planned manuscript submission **here
by May 1 (later indications may be accepted)!

We invite manuscripts with the following scope:

*Scope: *// <https://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors>Rotation rate sensors
are finding more and more applications in science and engineering, most
prominently by serving for the control of vehicle or airplane motion.
Functions in consumer electronics, such as smartphones and smartwatches
are controlled with respect to their tilt. In modern seismology the
measurement of rotations about the vertical and horizontal axes are
combined with classic displacement records, which has demonstrated many
powerful applications. Even a small rocking motion of the foundations of
tall buildings translate into substantial tip displacements. Furthermore
we are now in the position to obtain torsional motion from tall
structures reliably. All these applications require various types of
rotation rate sensors. From small MEMS gyros, over fiber-optic gyros and
electrochemical devices to high resolution, large ring lasers. The
purpose of the special issue is to collect papers on (inertial) rotation
rate sensors and their applications, with particular attention paid to
the novel areas of application in modern geophysics, civil and seismic
engineering as well as mechanical engineering and modern geodesy,
including also structural health monitoring.
