Synchronisation of Clock-Stations and the Sagnac Effect

Alphonsus G. Kelly
Year: 1997
Keywords: clock synchronisation, Sagnac effect, relativistic corrections
It is shown that the Sagnac correction, as applied to time comparisons upon the Earth, does not derive from the normal Relativistic corrections. It is psoposed that the reason given for the application of the Sagnac correction, and the circumstances appropriate to the application, require amendment.
