The 5th IWGoRS workshop will be held at the Teacher's Hostel, Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan, from September 22-26, 2019. Institute of Earth Sciences, Academia Sinica (IES) will be the local host. The workshop will cover on all aspects of rotational seismology including (but not limited to):

  • instrumentation (portable sensors, ring lasers, tilt correction, etc)

  • observation of rotations (application domains, best practices)

  • array seismology (gradients, strains, rotations)

  • data processing, wavefield interpolation, phase separation

  • earthquake physics

  • volcano seismology

  • ocean-bottom observations

  • earthquake engineering

  • seismic inverse problems

With the advance of portable rotation sensor, we expect more rotation observations will be shown in the workshop. Interested researchers are welcome to join us!

Note that before this IWGoRS workshop, there will be a conference, the International Conference in Commemoration of 20th Anniversary of the 1999 Mw7.6 Chi-Chi Earthquake, to be held on September 15-19, Taipei, Taiwan. Please find more information on this link
