Paper Abstract

Azimuth and astronomic latitude can be determined using inertial rotation sensors. New applications in surveying and geodesy appear as the accuracy of the determinations improve. Geophysical applications require high precision sensors operating in a carefully controlled environment. Useful determinations of polar wobble might be feasible by monitoring azimuth and astronomic latitude in geophysical observatories.
