Title: The earth rotation
Post by: ju on November 11, 2019, 01:53:36 AM
Hello I'm new here and there is something I don't understand at all. Why do we have to demonstrate that the earth isn't rotating. I'm not saying it does ! But, if it does, is there any contradiction with our  theory ?

It comes down to how the rotation is and what effects it would have.

One of the big arguments presented in favour of a FE is that Earth can't be rotating as you would feel it.
If a FE was rotating you would feel it even more. That is because it would be sideways, not up and down.
It would mean all the water on Earth would pool at the edges.
To avoid this you would need Earth to be shaped like a bowl, specifically a parabola.
This means not only is Earth curved, the curvature would vary with location.
The edges of Earth (at 20 000 km) would be turned up by roughly 0.6 degrees.

It would make it even harder to explain things like why objects disappear from the bottom up, and why the southern hemisphere can't see Polaris.

It would also relate back to the Coriolis effect. If Earth rotated then that should be expected. However the big difference between this rotating FE and the RE is that the rotation would be the same everywhere as the surface is basically flat.
This means things like Focault's pendula should record the same rate of rotation everywhere, and that weather systems should turn the same way in the north and south.
But that contradicts so many observations.

In order to have rotating help the model, you need to have the north rotate in one direction and the south rotate in the other. But for a FE that would mean the sun would rise in the east in the north and the west in the south.

So rotating doesn't help FE models match reality, so it is easier to simply deny it rather than accept it and have the evidence which supports it support a RE due to how the effect of rotation varies.

P.S. FE doesn't have a theory. It has an idea with many different contradictory models.
E.g. some people say the north pole is at the centre, some say the south pole, some say the equator, some say it is infinite and has no centre.

There are three aspects of the rotation question.

1. Rotation of the Earth (axial rotation)

2. Rotation of the Earth around the Sun (orbital motion)

3. Precession

The most difficult one is the third, the precession, since it requires the proof that ancient history was entirely forged (from Hipparchus to Kepler).

Or, maybe the ancients didn't understand the true nature of the earth as well as they thought they did.

Robert R Newton questioned the validity of historical observations, not history itself.

Here is another amazing contradiction of the conventional chronology of history.

"When the Emperor was waging war in Syria, at the winter solstice there was an eclipse of the Sun such as has never happened apart from that which was brought on the Earth at the Passion of our Lord on account of the folly of the Jews. . . The eclipse was such a spectacle. It occurred on the 22nd day of December, at the 4th hour of the day, the air being calm. Darkness fell upon the Earth and all the brighter stars revealed themselves. Everyone could see the disc of the Sun without brightness, deprived of light, and a certain dull and feeble glow, like a narrow headband, shining round the extreme parts of the edge of the disc. However, the Sun gradually going past the Moon (for this appeared covering it directly) sent out its original rays, and light filled the Earth again."

Refers to a total solar eclipse in Constantinople of 22 December AD 968.
From: Leo the Deacon, Historiae, Byzantine.

http://www.mreclipse.com/Special/quotes2.html

However, the winter solstice in the year 968 MUST HAVE FALLEN on December 16, given the 10 day correction instituted by Gregory XIII, as we are told (a very simple calculation - 11 minutes in the length of a solar year amount to a full day for each 134 years), according to the official chronology.

Nope they are not the references

Among the other experts in celestial mechanics who attacked this problem was Robert Newton from Johns Hopkins University. In 1979, he published the first volume of a book that considered the issue by looking at historical solar eclipses. Five years later, he came up with a second volume, which approached the problem from the point of view of lunar observations. His conclusion was that the behavior of D'' could be explained only by factoring in some unknown forces.

That was your statement which then follows a paste of some body else??

Newton had issues with historians not chronological history

(https://web.archive.org/web/20120323153614im_/http://www.pereplet.ru/gorm/fomenko/dsec1.gif)

The concern is with the acceleration, D'', of the moon's elongation, which is the angle between the moon and the sun as viewed from Earth. This acceleration D'' is computable from observations, and its past behavior can be determined from records of eclipses. Its values vary between -18 and +2 seconds of arc per century squared. Also, D'' is slightly above zero and almost constant from about 700 BC to AD 500, but it drops significantly for the next five centuries, to settle at around -18 after AD 1000. Unfortunately this variation cannot be explained from gravitation, which requires the graph to be a horizontal line.

You now have three possibilities:

1. There are unknown forces

2. The laws of physics have changed since the past millenium

Each and every astronomical observation for the period 500 AD - 1200 AD researched by Dr. Newton was faked/forged; this is the reason for the unimaginable discrepancies.

Since the Gregorian calendar wasn't introduced until 1582 (over 600 years after said battle), then the winter solstice could well have occurred on December 16 of the old calendar and corrected to December 22 on the Gregorian calendar.  I don't see a problem, except for maybe some trouble keeping track of which calendar was being used when.

Hi.
There is  right question - is the Earth spinning?
I`m still sure the Earth is globe. But.. few times ago youtube offered to me some video. "Hiroscope. Still Earth". I was thinked: What the fuck? I was thinked: What the f :-X :-Xk? How it can be? I`m sure - Erath is spinnig!!!
This is the video (http://)
Wright now we can see a real proff of STILL Earth in experiment.

I think it`s some trick or mistake. And continued to search any experiments with hyro like this one. Totaly 3 people made this experiment with hyro to examine Eearth spinning.

May by all of them are crazy? Now i`m try to find any proof of spininng Earth by the hyro. And... - thtere are nothing!

And now i`m starting to build own simple hiro to get an answer: Do the Earth is spinning or not?

The problem with any experiment like this, is that the rotation of Earth is very slow.
A small amount of friction is often enough to drag the gyroscope along with Earth. This is especially true if the rotation needs to occur over multiple axes.
Another issue is that it requires the gyro to be balanced, such that it will not drift by itself, and free from disturbances which would otherwise cause it to drift.

The first thing anyone should do when attempting an experiment like this is first determine the limit of detection of the instrument and method, or at the very least confirm that the rotation of Earth is above that limit.

A simple way to do this would be with an equatorial mount telescope or the like, where you rotate the setup as if Earth was rotating, both in the direction of Earth's rotation and against it.
Assuming your setup is sensitive enough, then if Earth is not rotating, you should get the same result in both directions, if Earth is rotating, you will get different results.

If your setup is not sensitive enough, then it wont detect the rotation you have induced.

Another important point is that it is a slow process. Try watching the hour hand on a clock and see if you can see it move, and then note that Earth rotates roughly half as fast, and depending on the gyro and your latitude, you may only be observing a portion of that.

The best videos would be a timelapse, without someone repeatedly resetting it.
In fact, if you watch that video you linked carefully, the gyro is rotating, but the guy keeps moving it so you can't easily tell.
It also doesn't appear to be balanced as the direction it rotates changes.
e.g.:
(https://i.imgur.com/UdoXkDj.gif)
(https://i.imgur.com/Czoe1HA.gif)

So it definitely isn't show Earth to be stationary. Instead it is showing the gyro is drifting.

You are absolutely right! For getting more accurate result we need 'ideal gyro' and use ideal bearing in gimbal. I know all this problems because I`m an engineer.  But as we know from a history first using gyrocompass as part of navigating system is about 100 years ago.
Thanks for some ideas like testing sensitivity. I suppose that I don`t need hi accurate of gyro because no need a navigation.
By the way in video from 0:00:00 to 2:03:00 gyro have constant direction. It is worth noting that axis of giro in this case was horizontal.  After that author turn axis to some angle and gyro start procession moving. I think this moving is able in case mass center of gyro is not in across gimbal axes.
It`s very fun - nobody want to chek earth rotation with gyro.

Ok. What do You think about all time before 2:47:00? All this time the axis keeping horizontal direction. And it`s azimuth was 90. In time about 3 hours axis of gyro must by change it angle to horizontal about 45 degrees, isn`t it?

Analysis of 90 days operation of the gyroscope, GINGERINO (http://inspirehep.net/record/1668221/files/1804.02569.pdf)
1 Introduction
Ring Laser Gyroscopes (RLG) are, at present, the most precise sensors of absolute angular velocity for an Earth based apparatus. They are based on the Sagnac effect arising from a rigidly rotating ring laser cavity. They are essential in estimating rotation rates relative
to the local inertial frame in many contexts ranging from inertial guidance to angular metrology, from geodesy to geophysics. The Gross Ring “G”at the Wettzell Geodetic Observatory has obtained a resolution on the Earth rotation rate of about 15 × 10−14 rad/s with 4 hours of integration time (3 × 10−9 in relative units).

That paper did not give the rotation rate, just the stability etc.
But this paper does Ring-Lasers seismic rotational sensing, Angela Di Virgilio-INFN-Pisa (https://agenda.infn.it/getFile.py/access?contribId=140&sessionId=5&resId=0&materialId=slides&confId=10512) and the result is:
Quote from: Angela Di Virgilio
which is a period of 23.93447 hours and the currently quoted sidereal day is 23.9345 hours.

The GINGERino deep underground ring-laser shows that the earth rotates on its axis at (7.2921150±0.0000001)×10−5 radians/sec.

Now show me anything that the flat-Earth has measured to anything that precision!

For example, justify the FE claim that the Moon is about 3000 miles above the Earth yet "moon-bounce" experiments show a "bounce time of 2.5 seconds".

Tom Bishop in another discussion laid down this challenge:
. . . . .
I accept the challenge and ask him to justify and prove his assertion that the Moon is 32 miles in diameter at a distance of 3000 miles (approx)
I chose this as the FE belief about the moon is a rather easy one to check unlike the existence of Dark Energy which no member of this site has the means to study or ratify.
I also ask him why the simple moon bounce experiment that any keen radio ham can carry out gives a bounce time of 2.5 seconds? That would mean according to you, Tom Bishop, radio waves travel at 1931KM/sec rather than the globally accepted figure of 299,750KM/sec. Quite a difference. I wonder how Tom Bishop accounts for this. According to the rules as set by Tom Bishop himself the topic can not be changed.
I cant wait to see his reply laid out according to the scientific method.

Zetetic Astronomy, Earth is Not a Globe (https://www.sacred-texts.com/earth/za/za23.htm)
CHAPTER V.
THE TRUE DISTANCE OF THE SUN.
IT is now demonstrated that the earth is a plane, and therefore the distance of the sun may be readily and most accurately ascertained by the simplest possible process. The operation is one in plane trigonometry, which admits of no uncertainty and requires no modification or allowance for probable influences.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
[iIf any allowance is to be made for refraction--which, no doubt, exists where the sun's rays have to pass through a medium, the atmosphere, which gradually increases in density as it approaches the earth's surface--it will considerably diminish the above-named distance of the sun; ]so that it is perfectly safe to affirm that the under edge of the sun is considerably less than 700 statute miles above the earth.[/i]

The above method of measuring distances applies equally to the moon and stars; and it is easy to demonstrate, to place it beyond the possibility of error, so long as assumed premises are excluded, that the moon is nearer to the earth than the sun, and that all the visible luminaries in the firmament are contained within a vertical distance of 1000 statute miles.

But Rowbotham claimed "that all the visible luminaries in the firmament are contained within a vertical distance of 1000 statute miles" not 3100 miles as is now asserted.
Funny that!

That last graph that I posted shows data for one hour. The earth is supposed to rotate 15 degrees in that time. Where do you see 15 degrees in that mess of data? Sometimes the earth is rotating backwards according to that. Scale won't help you.

Looks like this is a checkmate then. You admit that it is noisy raw data that must be filtered.

The device is detecting a multitude of unknown effects and special filtering algorithms are applied to pull out patterns in the data. How do we know which effect is being pulled out from the various phenomena from the background environment that is causing the noise?

Because it matches the period of a diurnal day? Not really sufficient evidence. If the earth were flat and motionless phenomena related to the diurnal day would still exist.

It might need data averaging to each this precision (7.2921150±0.0000001)×10−5 radians/sec but even without averaging the relative errors are not more than one part in 1000.
Look for yourself at the raw data.

Ring-Lasers seismic rotational sensing, Angela Di Virgilio-INFN-Pisa (https://agenda.infn.it/getFile.py/access?contribId=140&sessionId=5&resId=0&materialId=slides&confId=10512) and the result is:
Quote from: Angela Di Virgilio
which is a period of 23.93447 hours and the currently quoted sidereal day is 23.9345 hours.

Quote from: Tom Bishop
The device is detecting a multitude of unknown effects and special filtering algorithms are applied to pull out patterns in the data. How do we know which effect is being pulled out from the various phenomena from the background environment that is causing the noise?
The unfiltered data is already within 0.1% of the averaged value.
So all these so-called "unknown effects" always average to the same value on all the ring-laser gyroscope installed around the world?

Quote from: Tom Bishop
Because it matches the period of a diurnal day? Not really sufficient evidence. If the earth were flat and motionless phenomena related to the diurnal day would still exist.
No one ever mentioned the "diurnal day". Try reading what is written!
But, in any case why would "phenomena related to the diurnal day" be significant when the Moon supposedly circles with a period about 50 minutes longer.
And, according to flat-Earthers the Moon is about the same size as the Sun.

It's not just one large ring-laser gyroscope in Italy but there's a similar one in Germany, one in New Zealand etc and numerous smaller ones with lewer precision.

You whole attitude seems be that we can measure nothing and that proves the Earth to be flat - but it does nothing of the sort.

Now what about justifying some of the flat-Earth claims such as the Sun and Moon's heights?

Look what I found: https://wiki.tfes.org/Ring_Laser_Gyroscope
You mean look at what you wrote.

As you have pointed out before, your baseless claims can just be dismissed.
Do you have evidence?

It doesn't look like the data is naturally stable to me. We can presume that there were not constant earthquakes for all 95 days.
Really?
It looks pretty stable, staying between 280.40 and 280.45 with the exception of a few spikes such as due to Earthquakes.
That is a variation of less than 0.02%.
That is very stable.

Raw data from the second document, in Angular Velocity (rad/s):
It is raw-average.
This alone doesn't tell us much, other than that the variation is very small, on the order of 10-8 rad/s.
Now what was the average?
Going by what rab posted I suspect it is on the order of 10-5, so again, a tiny variation.

That last graph that I posted shows data for one hour. The earth is supposed to rotate 15 degrees in that time. Where do you see 15 degrees in that mess of data? Sometimes the earth is rotating backwards according to that. Scale won't help you.
Can you not read, or are you intentionally being dishonest?
Like I said, that is raw-AVERAGE!
It is not the raw data. It is purely showing the noise.

So no, that is not showing Earth rotating backwards, try again.

Because it matches the period of a diurnal day? Not really sufficient evidence. If the earth were flat and motionless phenomena related to the diurnal day would still exist.
No, it doesn't. Look at the plot over 1 hour. Does that match a day? No.
But more importantly, what is causing your flat, allegedly stationary Earth to record such a rotation, or such strong noise at that specific frequency?

Rubbish! That graph shows nothing of the sort!

I need no scale to help but the scale is vitally important,

This is getting tedious! Read what is written in the title of that graph!
It reads "GINGERino angular velocity - average value".

Look! That graph does not show any angular velocity at all - but it does show how small the deviations were!

Even the raw data rarely shows deviations exceeding 2 x 10-8 rad/sec and the average deviation is about 1 x 10-8 rad/sec.

Hence the raw data, without any averaging shows the Earth's rotation rate as (7.292±0.002)×10−5 rad/sec.
Who needs any better to show that the Earth rotates? By the way, the ring-laser gyroscope responds to rotation not to gravitation or electromagnetic effects.

Quote from: Tom Bishop
I'm not spamming!
Firstly you raised these these baseless claims about the precision of the gyroscopes so I wanted you to face the abysmal precision of the few measurements flat-Earthers have claimed.

And then because you refuse to address that in any other thread!

Totally invalid. The nature of the analysis itself, of trying to pick out one thing among unknown effects, provides no empirical demonstration or verification of what you are trying to measure.

Except as the aether doesn't exist, that leaves just the Earth rotating.

Also, I am yet to see any explanation of why the aether would magically cause the Coriolis effect.
In fact, you have it completely the wrong way around.
The Sagnac effect can be explained by Earth rotating or a hypothetical aether rotating around Earth.
So the Coriolis effect, like displayed by Foucault's pendulum would be the deciding factor, unless you accept that aether doesn't exist, in which case either can be.

What are you basing this claim on? You have provided no supporting quotes or sources.
Except the data you are just ignoring.
Of course when you ignore it you can pretend it isn't there.
But for everyone else, it still is.

In fact, you provided some of the data yourself.

Remember that first graph you posted? Showing a variation between 280.40 Hz and 280.45 Hz?
What is the variation in that? 0.05 Hz
What is the average? Roughly 280.425.
So what is the % variatoin?
0.05/280.425 = 0.0001783...
Or, expressed as a percentage is 0.01783...%
i.e. less than 0.02%.
Or to express it another way, it is + or - less than 0.01%.

Likewise, with the second figure you provided, we see that the variation from the average is less than 2*10^-8 rad/s and the average is roughly 7.3*10^-5 rad/s.

So what is the variation as a fraction?
2*10^-8/(7.3*10^-5)=0.00027 = 0.027%.

But of course, you ignore that and just pretend that that tiny variation means it just noise and we are trying to pull something from noise.

To compare it to your TV analogy, it would be akin to saying that the TV is just trying to pull a pattern from the noise, which just somehow makes a picture on the TV and it has nothing at all to do with people transmitting that image, all because there is some tiny, almost unnoticeable noise.
It is pure nonsense.

The signal is quite apparent, and quite clear.
Even without averaging, it is still clearly there.

Why not be honest and admit that there is clearly something there and that we aren't just pulling nonsense from noise?

Or at the least be consistent and say that because EVERYTHING will have some measure of noise that nothing can ever be empirically demonstrated because of that noise, regardless of how small the noise is compared to the signal?

Bunk. The noise displacement in that graph was across 0.05 Hz, yes. But the displacement the earthquakes were causing ranged across about 0.11 Hz. Now you are claiming that the general static seen is about half the magnitude of an earthquake and are trying to dismiss the range as trivial.

None of it tells us how small the supposed rotation rate of the earth compares.

Look at the scale!
Even the raw data deviations (including the minor quakes) are around 0.1 Hz in 280 Hz and of course "they are applying algorithms to the noisy raw data".

But even the raw data has a "natural stability" orders of magnitude better than anything any flat-Earther has ever dome!
As to your "presume that there were not constant earthquakes for all 95 days" claim.
Of course, there are "not constant earthquakes for all 95 days" but there are quite a number of minor shakes as is noted in the paper.

And it needs little data processing to see that, apart from minor quakes etc the Sagnac frequency lies in the range 280.42 ±0.02 Hz.

Show me any relevant measurement that any flat-Earther has done to anything like that precision.

Bunk. The noise displacement in that graph was across 0.05 Hz, yes.
And that is tiny compared to the signal.
Do you understand that?
The measured value was roughly 280.425 Hz.
0.05 Hz is basically nothing.
So you are complaining over nothing.
So no, not bunk at all.

You are appealing a tiny amount of noise to say there is no signal.
Again, that is like complaining about unnoticeable noise to say there is no TV signal.

None of it tells us how small the supposed rotation rate of the earth compares.
Again, can you see the clear signal?
That makes it quite clear how well it compares.

More bunk. You are now talking about figures after the data analysis filtering, in the effort to make your argument.
No, now I am comparing the noise to the average value.

If there was filtering, it would not be that noisy.
Do you understand what filtering does?
It removes the noise.

What is shown is the difference between the raw data and the average.
All that is doing is offsetting it.

You are attacking strawmen to pretend you have an argument.

That graph shows raw data for the span of an hour. Where do you see 15 degrees manifested in that graph?
Just show us where the 15 degrees per hour shows up in that graph.
No, it is your argument that is complete garbage.
Again, that graph shows the raw data minus the average.
Do you understand that?
It is showing the deviation from the average.
Now, do you think Earth's rotation rate is part of the average, or part of the deviation?
As Earth's rotation is almost constant (especially over that time period) it would be part of the average, and thus when you look at the deviation, it will vanish.

Do you understand?
If you do, why are you continuing to make such a pathetic and obviously false claim?

I did read it. It says angular velocity. Raw data. So where is the 15 degrees per hour shown?
Try harder. Make sure you note what it says after angular velocity.
Here, I'll even make it simpler by circling it in red.
(https://i.imgur.com/8BtKbqp.png)
Can you see it now? The important 2 words you are either completely missing or intentionally lying about?

Again, where you expect Earth's ~15 degree per hour rotation rate to show up in that graph?

Actually, it doesn't say that.
While it doesn't use those exact words, that is what it says.
It is the angular velocity-average value, and that is the deviation.
Just what do you think the deviation is?

That does not imply that the results are averaged with an algorithm, or that some things are subtracted with an algorithm.
Then what do you think it means?
Please explain exactly what you think angular velocity - average value means?
What is the average value?

It explicitly says RAW DATA.
To indicate that it hasn't been filtered.

All it does is change the 0 point, i.e. shift the axis.

It is like expressing "RAW DATA" for temperature in celsius vs fahrenheit.

If it was just the raw data like you want to pretend then it would not have " - average value".

Do you understand the insanity of your claim?
You are saying that even though it explicitly states that the value plotted has had the average subtracted, it somehow doesn't mean that the average has been subtracted?

It specifically says RAW DATA and you are arguing that it is filtered in some way. I can only interpret that as a rather weak argument. On topics like these there should be multiple sources or quotes which confirm what you are trying to claim, yet you appeal to your own personal interpretation of a dash.

No, that is obviously a "minus sign" otherwise it would not have been centred on zero!

Read what is written in the title of that graph!
It reads "GINGERino angular velocity - average value".
That heading would be meaningless with a "dash".

Stop this scrabbling around for excuses to explain away these results.
Those big ring-laser gyroscopes do indeed measure the rotation rate of the Earth to be (7.292±0.002)×10−5 rad/sec with no data averaging:
Even the raw data rarely shows deviations exceeding 2 x 10-8 rad/sec and the average deviation is about 1 x 10-8 rad/sec.

Hence the raw data, without any averaging shows the Earth's rotation rate as (7.292±0.002)×10−5 rad/sec.
Who needs any better to show that the Earth rotates?

But when the data is quite legitimately "filtered" the result is:

Again, clearly explain just what you think that portion of the title means.

you are arguing that it is filtered in some way.
No, we are arguing that it has an offset, as in the average has been subtracted.
Meanwhile, you are completely ignoring that it clearly states it is the angular velocity - average value, you are completley ignoring that the average has been subtracted.

That isn't a rather weak argument. That is blatant dishonest, wilfully rejecting reality to prop up fantasy.

On topics like these there should be multiple sources or quotes which confirm what you are trying to claim
You mean like the other data which clearly show it isn't centred on 0? The data you just like to ignore?

You are the one clinging to personal interpretation, not us.

Those RLGs measure the rotation of the ether drift through the CORIOLIS EFFECT.

If you want rotation (of the Earth) you need the SAGNAC EFFECT.

We have been over this countless times with you repeatedly failing to justify your insane claims.
The sagnac effect will be the same regardless of if you accept reality with a rotating Earth, or if you choose to cling to a refuted aether which is stationary with Earth rotating, or the refuted aether which rotates about a stationary Earth, or the refuted aether which rotates with Earth rotating as well.

The Sagnac effect is recorded with ring laser gyroscopes. You blatantly lying about that will not change that fact.
If you wish to disagree, feel free to go back to one of the countless threads on the Sagnac effect you have already been refuted in and try to defend your claims. Maybe start with a derivation, from first principles, starting with how long it takes for light to traverse a stationary loop.

The Effect of Polar Motion on Ring Laser Gyroscopes
In an active laser cavity, as is the case for our instruments, lasing is achieved when an integral number of wavelengths circumscribe the ring perimeter. Since the path length is slightly different for the co-rotating and the counter-rotating beams the lasing frequencies are also slightly different in each case and the beat frequency of the two laser beams, the Sagnac frequency is readily measurable.

This was before the LISA SPACE ANTENNA calculations.

LISA Space Antenna

(https://image.ibb.co/ivHjjS/lisa2.jpg)

The LISA interferometer rotates both around its own axis and around the Sun as well, at the same time.

That is, the interferometer will be subjected to BOTH the rotational Sagnac (equivalent to the Coriolis effect) and the orbital Sagnac effects.

Given the huge cost of the entire project, the best experts in the field (CalTech, ESA) were called upon to provide the necessary theoretical calculations for the total phase shift of the interferometer. To everyone's surprise, and for the first time since Sagnac and Michelson and Gale, it was found that the ORBITAL SAGNAC EFFECT is much greater than the CORIOLIS EFFECT.

The factor of proportionality is R/L (R = radius of rotation, L = length of the side of the interferometer).

This is an IOP article, published by the prestigious journal Classic and Quantum Gravity:

http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0264-9381/22/10/040/meta

In this work, we estimate the effects due to the Sagnac phase by taking the realistic model for LISA orbital motion.

This work is organized as follows: in section 2, we make an estimate of Sagnac phase
for individual laser beams of LISA by taking realistic orbital motion. Here we show that, in general, the residual laser noise because of Sagnac phase is much larger than earlier estimates.

For the LISA geometry, R⊙/L is of the order 30 and the orbital contribution to the Sagnac phase is larger by this factor.

The computations carried out by Dr. R.K. Nayak (over ten papers published on the subject) and Dr. J.Y. Vinet (Member of the LISA International Science Team), and published by prestigious scientific journals and by ESA, show that the orbital Sagnac is 30 times greater than the rotational Sagnac for LISA.

CALTECH acknowledges that the ORBITAL SAGNAC EFFECT is not being registered by GPS satellites.

Dr. Massimo Tinto, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Principal Scientist

In the SSB frame, the differences between back-forth delay times are very much larger than has been previously recognized. The reason is in the aberration due to motion and changes of orientation in the SSB frame. With a velocity V=30 km/s, the light-transit times of light signals in opposing directions (Li, and L’i) will differ by as much as 2VL (a few thousands km).

SSB = solar system barycenter

Published in the Physical Review D

http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/ is the U.S. Naval Observatory website

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0310017.pdf

Within this frame, which we can assume to be Solar System Barycentric (SSB), the differences between back-forth delay times that occur are in fact thousands of kilometers, very much larger than has been previously recognized by us or others. The problem is not rotation per se, but rather aberration due to motion and changes of orientation in the SSB frame.

The kinematics of the LISA  orbit brings in the effects of motion at several orders of magnitude larger than any previous papers on TDI have addressed. The instantaneous rotation axis of LISA swings about the Sun at 30 km/sec, and on any leg the transit times of light signals in opposing directions can differ by as much as 1000 km.

Aberration due to LISA’s orbit about the Sun dominates its instantaneous rotation.

The ORBITAL SAGNAC calculated at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory amounts to an admitted difference in path lengths of 1,000 kilometers.

The difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac is 14.4 kilometers:

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0306125.pdf (Dr. Daniel Shaddock, Jet Propulsion Laboratory)

https://gwic.ligo.org/thesisprize/2011/yu_thesis.pdf (pg. 63)

Therefore the difference in path lengths for the ORBITAL SAGNAC is some 60 times greater than the difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac, according to these calculations.

TWO DIFFERENT FORMULAS.

One (CORIOLIS EFFECT) is proportional to the area of the interferometer.

The other (SAGNAC EFFECT) is proportional to the velocity of the light beams.

For a start the orbital period and the rotational period of LISA are both one year not only that but there is not one laser sending light in both directions but lasers at each corner..

Besides, you don't believe that the Earth or the LISA satellites could be orbiting the Sun so I see it as a mite hypocritical to try to use this material to support your ideas that no one else in this whole world seems to support.

But who said it was "To everyone's surprise"? You alone?

So you say but everyone else says that the Coriolis force is (https://www.dropbox.com/s/ymhi8efjdujyywm/Coriolis%20Force%20Equation.png?dl=1).
The Coriolis acceleration is 2 x the vector cross product of (the angular velocity of the rotating reference frame) and the (velocity of the particle).
No area comes into it.

So you say but everybody else says that the Sagnac delay is proportional to the (angular velocity of the loop) x (the area of the loop projected onto the plane of rotation).
That can be expressed as an inner vector product if you wish.

The formula which features an area and an angular velocity is now derived DIRECTLY using the CORIOLIS force:

(two of the best known experts on the SAGNAC EFFECT in the world)

(M.L. Ruggiero is member of the GINGER collaboration)

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0305046.pdf

The CORIOLIS EFFECT formula, 4Aω/c2, has been derived using solely the CORIOLIS FORCE.

But this is not the SAGNAC EFFECT formula, which is proportional to the velocity of the light beams.

Stokes' theorem/formula guarantees that there will always be two formulas for each interferometer: the CORIOLIS EFFECT formula and the SAGNAC EFFECT formula.

The influence of Earth rotation in neutrino speed measurements between CERN and the OPERA detector

Markus G. Kuhn
Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge

For the first time ever, it was acknowledged that the SAGNAC EFFECT measured for the neutrino experiment is actually the CORIOLIS EFFECT.

"As the authors did not indicate whether and how they took into account the Coriolis or Sagnac effect that Earth’s rotation has on the (southeastwards traveling) neutrinos, this brief note quantifies this effect.

And the resulting Coriolis effect (in optics also known as Sagnac effect) should be taken into account."

Look, the "LISA SPACE ANTENNA" is a quite different to either the GPS of these RLGs so I fail to see the relevance.

BOTH ARE LIGHT INTERFEROMETERS.

For a start the orbital period and the rotational period of LISA are both one year not only that but there is not one laser sending light in both directions but lasers at each corner..

GINGER has corners too, four of them.

It doesn't matter how many lasers you have: what does matter are the LOOPS.

THE FORMULAS ARE THE SAME: both RLGs and LISA features the very same formulas.

Where has anyone mentioned "CORIOLIS EFFECT" other than you? Stop reading into papers thing that are not there.

You go and read all the papers by people that know far more than you who all refer to the GINGERino ring-laser-Gyroscopes as being Sagnac devices.

GINGER and CAMBRIDGE agree with me.

What was recorded was the Sagnac effect.

You cannot derive the SAGNAC EFFECT from the CORIOLIS FORCE.

Here is the CORIOLIS EFFECT FORMULA:

The term “Sagnac effect” is part of the vocabulary of only the observer in the rotating reference frame. The corresponding correction applied by the inertial observer might be called a “velocity correction.” While the interpretation of the correction is different in the two frames, the numerical value is the same in either frame.

Unless you go back to one of those threads, I don't really care what lies you want to spout about the Sagnac effect.

The simple fact is that laser ring gyroscopes record the Sagnac effect for Earth's rotation.
The simple fact is that the Sagnac effect, for a simple ring interferometer is based upon the area and angular velocity.

RING LASER GYROSCOPES MEASURE/RECORD THE CORIOLIS EFFECT.

Then you might worry about average values, raw data.

They positively do not register the SAGNAC EFFECT.

The SAGNAC EFFECT has nothing to do with the area of the interferometer.

Ring Laser Gyroscopes measure/record the Sagnac Effect:

Direct measurement of diurnal polar motion by ring laser gyroscopes
K. U. Schreiber, A. Velikoseltsev, M. Rothacher

The Effect of Polar Motion on Ring Laser Gyroscopes
In an active laser cavity, as is the case for our instruments, lasing is achieved when an integral number of wavelengths circumscribe the ring perimeter. Since the path length is slightly different for the co-rotating and the counter-rotating beams the lasing frequencies are also slightly different in each case and the beat frequency of the two laser beams, the Sagnac frequency is readily measurable.

That was back in 2004.

Now, in 2018, things have changed dramatically.

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0310017.pdf

Within this frame, which we can assume to be Solar System Barycentric (SSB), the differences between back-forth delay times that occur are in fact thousands of kilometers, very much larger than has been previously recognized by us or others. The problem is not rotation per se, but rather aberration due to motion and changes of orientation in the SSB frame.

The kinematics of the LISA  orbit brings in the effects of motion at several orders of magnitude larger than any previous papers on TDI have addressed. The instantaneous rotation axis of LISA swings about the Sun at 30 km/sec, and on any leg the transit times of light signals in opposing directions can differ by as much as 1000 km.

Aberration due to LISA’s orbit about the Sun dominates its instantaneous rotation.

The ORBITAL SAGNAC calculated at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory amounts to an admitted difference in path lengths of 1,000 kilometers.

The difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac is 14.4 kilometers:

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0306125.pdf (Dr. Daniel Shaddock, Jet Propulsion Laboratory)

https://gwic.ligo.org/thesisprize/2011/yu_thesis.pdf (pg. 63)

Therefore the difference in path lengths for the ORBITAL SAGNAC is some 60 times greater than the difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac, according to these calculations.

TWO DIFFERENT FORMULAS.

One (CORIOLIS EFFECT) is proportional to the area of the interferometer.

The other (SAGNAC EFFECT) is proportional to the velocity of the light beams.

RING LASER GYROSCOPES RECORD ONLY THE FORMULA WHICH FEATURES THE AREA/ANGULAR VELOCITY, THAT IS, THE CORIOLIS EFFECT.

The much larger SAGNAC EFFECT is not recorded.

Make sure you understand these very important words coming from CALTECH:

very much larger than has been previously recognized by us or others

The paper referenced by you is obsolete: the new data shows that there are TWO FORMULAS TO DEAL WITH: CORIOLIS AND SAGNAC.

Each and every page.

The same formula applies for FOC as for regular mirror interferometers.

They are the very same, a more advanced technology.

Phase-conjugate mirrors (PCMs) are even more advanced than FOC, yet they feature the very same formula.

Stokes' theorem guarantees/proves that you need to deal with two formulas: one is proportional to the area, the other one is proportional to the velocity.

Dr. Massimo Tinto proves that there are TWO FORMULAS TO DEAL WITH for each and every interferometer which is located away from the center of rotation.

One is the CORIOLIS EFFECT formula.

The other one is the SAGNAC EFFECT formula.

RLGs register only the CORIOLIS EFFECT, not the SAGNAC EFFECT.

2.3 Experimental tests and derivation of the Sagnac Effect
The Sagnac effect with matter waves has been verified experimentally using Cooper pairs[41] in 1965, using neutrons[42] in 1984, using 40Ca atoms beams[43] in 1991 and using electrons, by Hasselbach-Nicklaus[44], in 1993.
The effect of the terrestrial rotation on neutron phase was demonstrated in 1979 by Werner et al.[45] in a series of famous experiments.

The Sagnac phase shift has been derived, in the full framework of the SRT, for electromagnetic waves in vacuum (Weber[26], Dieks[27], Anandan[28], Rizzi-Tartaglia[29], Bergia-Guidone [30], Rodrigues-Sharif[31]). However, a clear and universally shared derivation for matter waves is not available as far as we know, or it is at least difficult to find it in the literature. Indeed,
the Sagnac phase shift for matter waves has been derived, in the first order approximation with respect to the velocity of rotation of the interferometer, by many authors (see Ashby’s paper in this book[46] and the paper by Hasselbach-Nicklaus for discussions and further references). These derivations are often based on an heterogeneous mixture of classical kinematics
and relativistic dynamics, or non relativistic quantum mechanics and some relativistic elements.

An example of such derivations is given in a well-known paper by Sakurai[7], on the basis of a formal analogy between the classical Coriolis force
FCor = 2mov × Ω                           (3)
acting on a particle of mass mo moving in a uniformly rotating frame, and the Lorentz force
FLor = (e/c) v × B                            (4)
acting on a particle of charge e moving in a constant magnetic field B.

[/quote]
Agree!

Quote from: sandokhan
The CORIOLIS EFFECT formula, 4Aω/c2, has been derived using solely the CORIOLIS FORCE.
• Nowhere do Rizzi and Ruggiero call it the Coriolis effect! And the only places Coriolis is mentioned is above, in
"the field G′′i can be interpreted as a Coriolis-like gravitational-inertial field" and
"which corresponds to a generalized Coriolis-like force."

• On the other hand "Sagnac effect" appears numerous times where it is made obvious that they are deriving the Sagnac effect, eg:
"In this way, we have obtained a derivation of the relativistic Sagnac time difference (whose first-order approximation coincides with Sakurai’s result) in a self-consistent way."

Both derivations are carried out in a fully relativistic context, which turns out to be the natural arena where the Sagnac effect can be explained.
Indeed, its universality can be clearly understood as a purely geometrical effect in the Minkowski space-time of the SRT, while it is hard to grasp in the context of classical physics."

"we exploited this analogy in our derivation of the Sagnac effect starting from the Aharonov-Bohm effect".
So no, it has NOT "been derived using solely the CORIOLIS FORCE"! Did you miss the "formal analogy between the classical Coriolis force"?

In fact they write "its universality can be clearly understood as a purely geometrical effect in the Minkowski space-time of the SRT"!

Quote from: sandokhan
But this is not the SAGNAC EFFECT formula, which is proportional to the velocity of the light beams.
Sorry, but Rizzi and Ruggiero seem to disagree with! See above.

Quote from: sandokhan
Stokes' theorem/formula guarantees that there will always be two formulas for each interferometer: the CORIOLIS EFFECT formula and the SAGNAC EFFECT formula.

Spinning Earth and its Coriolis effect on the circuital light beams

Bilger et al (1995), Anderson et al (1994) and Michelson–Gale assisted by Pearson (1925) measure/ mention Sagnac effect on the circuital light/laser beams on the spinning Earth. But from the consideration of classical electrodynamics, the effect measured/mentioned by those experimenters is the Coriolis effect, not the Sagnac effect.

Sagnac effect? No, it is Coriolis effect (section 4)

The author derives the Coriolis effect formula directly from the Coriolis force.

Case closed.

The Coriolis effect is a physical effect, nothing else, a slight path deviation of the light beams.

By contrast, the Sagnac effect is an electromagnetic effect, a modification of the velocities of the light beams.

Good job projecting, yet again.
Why do you feel the need to project your inadequacies onto others?
Is it the only way you pretend to yourself that you are better than them?

The MPPC acts like a normal mirror and Sagnac interferometry is obtained.
You have just been caught plain lying.
No, I haven't.
You have just been caught displaying extreme dishonesty.

You were discussing a FOC, using it as evidence that you can have a Sagnac formula without area.
I pointed out that they are fundametnally different to a FOG.
And how do you respond?
By a quote comparing FOGs, to one with phase conjugate mirrors.

And what formula is provided by your source for such a system with phase conjugate mirrors?
The key part is:
4*pi*(R1*L1+R2*L2)*omega/(lambda*c).
Now, the only way to convert this to a velocity of the beam is if the 2 coils are rotating about their centre, in which case omega*R=v.
But that isn't what we are discussing so such a conversion would be incorrect.
We are discussing it rotating about a point away from the centre.

There are multiple loops in the coil.
In fact, the number of loops is easy to calculate from the radius and total length, as l=n*(2*pi*r).
So we can substitute that in to the formula above and get this:
4*pi*(2*pi*R1*n1*R1+2*pi*R2*n2*R2)*omega/(lambda*c)
And then simplify a bit, by noting pi*r^2 is the area.
4*pi*(2*n1*A1+2*n2*A2)*omega/(lambda*c)
Then if we make it comparable to the gyros we are discussing, where the loops are cocentric, we end up with:
4*pi*2*(n1+n2)*A*omega/(lambda*c)

So this formula, which is based upon just simple substitution has what in it?
An AREA and an ANGULAR VELOCITY!

There is no linear velocity in this formula.
The only way to get one in a simple manner is if you have both loops concentric and have it rotate about the centre of the loop.
That is because the tangential velocity is given by r*omega, where r is the distance from the centre of rotation, not the radius of the loop.

So even then, the formula equates to one based upon an area and angular velocity.

What are you going to do now?
Act sanely and accept defeat, or claim another "refutation" which never happened?

If you don't get the same number, it means you screwed up.
You are trolling the upper forums.
The statement refers to a single formula, applied in different references.
Not to two different formulas.
No, the statement applies to Stoke's theorem, which shows there are 2 equivalent ways to derive the value, either going based upon a line integral or based upon an area integral.

Again, do you actually understand Stoke's theorem?

If you end up with 2 formulae with different values, i.e. they produce different numbers, Stoke's theorem guarantees that you screwed up.
One is much larger than the other
That means you screwed up.
Stoke's theorem guarantees that the numbers will be the same.
If you get different numbers you screwed up.

Where?
Caltech also fully accepts that Earth is round, and orbiting the sun.
That sure seems like it agrees with me, not you.
Are you going to admit that you claiming Earth is flat is wrong?
If not, perhaps you should stop repeatedly appealing to authorities you clearly don't understand.

If you want to pretend they agree with you, find a paper where they are clearly stating there are 2 fundamentally different formulas which produce different values for the exact same interferometer with the exact same rotation.

There is no linear velocity in this formula.

In most debates, it is the contention of some physicists that for a circular coil with N turns, there will be a term featuring the area in the SAGNAC EFFECT formula; then N would be multiplied by the circumference of the circular coil and by the radius, even though there is no area at all, just a segment light path.

However, this is completely wrong.

The N turns term is multiplied by the velocity and the length of the fiber coil.

Professor R. Wang, world's foremost expert in FOC/FOG, explains:

https://arxiv.org/ftp/physics/papers/0609/0609235.pdf

(https://i.ibb.co/6FR2NM3/cosag.jpg)

(https://i.ibb.co/nDpvsfM/cosag2.jpg)

This is the correct expression for the SAGNAC EFFECT formula for FOC/FOG interferometers:

Δt = 2VL/c2

L = N x l

V = R x Ω

R is not multiplied by (N x l) at all: the velocity (V = R x Ω) is multiplied by L (L = N x l).

Except people have done just that.

They haven't. They have derived the CORIOLIS FORMULA, not the SAGNAC FORMULA.

A huge difference.

Try to find a single paper in a reputable journal which says that for a rotating ring interferometer there are 2 separate effects acting on the light, the Sagnac effect and the Coriolis effect, which produce a different shift.

Good thing I'm not trying to.
We are not impressed by your pathetic dismissals and bait and switch BS.

The N turns term is multiplied by the velocity and the length of the fiber coil.
Again, the formula provided by the paper you cited shows you are wrong.

The formula is equivalent to one containing an area and angular velocity.

If you want to use velocity instead you will need to know the radius from the centre of rotation and do a complex line integral.
It is not a simple case of multiplying the angular velocity by the radius of the loop, or pretending there is only one velocity for the entire system.

Again, your own citations, support me, not you.

Go and find a citation which claims the Sagnac effect for a simple ring interferometer rotating about a point outside it, is based upon the tangential velocity of that rotation.

I have already done that, you are not paying attention.
No, you haven't, and you aren't even doing that now.
Instead you are cutting and pasting from multiple sources which you probably don't understand to try and pretend you have a case.

You have been reduced to total silence.

In most debates, it is the contention of some physicists that for a circular coil with N turns, there will be a term featuring the area in the SAGNAC EFFECT formula; then N would be multiplied by the circumference of the circular coil and by the radius, even though there is no area at all, just a segment light path.

However, this is completely wrong.

The N turns term is multiplied by the velocity and the length of the fiber coil.

Professor R. Wang, world's foremost expert in FOC/FOG, explains:

https://arxiv.org/ftp/physics/papers/0609/0609235.pdf

(https://i.ibb.co/6FR2NM3/cosag.jpg)
(https://i.ibb.co/nDpvsfM/cosag2.jpg)

This is the correct expression for the SAGNAC EFFECT formula for FOC/FOG interferometers:

Δt = 2VL/c2

L = N x l

V = R x Ω

R is not multiplied by (N x l) at all: the velocity (V = R x Ω) is multiplied by L (L = N x l).

Go and find a citation which claims the Sagnac effect for a simple ring interferometer rotating about a point outside it, is based upon the tangential velocity of that rotation.

Not any reference, but one coming from the JET PROPULSION LABORATORY.

Dr. Massimo Tinto, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Principal Scientist

In the SSB frame, the differences between back-forth delay times are very much larger than has been previously recognized. The reason is in the aberration due to motion and changes of orientation in the SSB frame. With a velocity V=30 km/s, the light-transit times of light signals in opposing directions (Li, and L’i) will differ by as much as 2VL (a few thousands km).

Then why does it clearly state that it is the Sagnac shift?

Because of the confusion created by Albert Michelson in 1925, when he claimed that his formula is the SAGNAC EFFECT equation.

But Michelson derived the CORIOLIS EFFECT formula.

The calculations provided for LISA prove that a light interferometer, located away from the center of rotation, will ALWAYS be subjected to two EFFECTS: CORIOLIS and SAGNAC.

Stoke's theorem guarantees that they MUST be the same.

This new situation requires the R/L factor evidenced by the calculations put forth for LISA: an interferometer located away from the center of rotation. Now, the R/L factor balances out the two formulas derived from Stokes' theorem.

(https://image.ibb.co/mpRKjS/lisa5.jpg)

In this work, we estimate the effects due to the Sagnac phase by taking the realistic model for LISA orbital motion.

This work is organized as follows: in section 2, we make an estimate of Sagnac phase
for individual laser beams of LISA by taking realistic orbital motion. Here we show that, in general, the residual laser noise because of Sagnac phase is much larger than earlier estimates.

For the LISA geometry, R⊙/L is of the order 30 and the orbital contribution to the Sagnac phase is larger by this factor.

The computations carried out by Dr. R.K. Nayak (over ten papers published on the subject) and Dr. J.Y. Vinet (Member of the LISA International Science Team), and published by prestigious scientific journals and by ESA, show that the orbital Sagnac is 30 times greater than the rotational Sagnac for LISA.

Dr. Massimo Tinto, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Principal Scientist

"the differences between back-forth delay times are very much larger than has been previously recognized."

This fact, the R/L factor, has to be incorporated into the Stokes formula which guarantees TWO EQUATIONS for each interferometer.

The kinematics of the LISA  orbit brings in the effects of motion at several orders of magnitude larger than any previous papers on TDI have addressed. The instantaneous rotation axis of LISA swings about the Sun at 30 km/sec, and on any leg the transit times of light signals in opposing directions can differ by as much as 1000 km.

Aberration due to LISA’s orbit about the Sun dominates its instantaneous rotation.

The formula is 2VL/c.

The ORBITAL SAGNAC calculated at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory amounts to an admitted difference in path lengths of 1,000 kilometers.

The difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac is 14.4 kilometers:

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0306125.pdf (Dr. Daniel Shaddock, Jet Propulsion Laboratory)

https://gwic.ligo.org/thesisprize/2011/yu_thesis.pdf (pg. 63)

Therefore the difference in path lengths for the ORBITAL SAGNAC is some 60 times greater than the difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac, according to these calculations.

The formula used for the ORBITAL SAGNAC (difference in path lengths) is 2VL/c, V = RΩ.

My references are the very best: CALTECH and ESA.

They prove that there will ALWAYS be two effects to deal with: CORIOLIS and SAGNAC.

TWO FORMULAS.

ALWAYS.

One is much greater than the other.

The Effect of Polar Motion on Ring Laser Gyroscopes
In an active laser cavity, as is the case for our instruments, lasing is achieved when an integral number of wavelengths circumscribe the ring perimeter. Since the path length is slightly different for the co-rotating and the counter-rotating beams the lasing frequencies are also slightly different in each case and the beat frequency of the two laser beams, the Sagnac frequency is readily measurable.

That was back in 2004.

Now, in 2018, things have changed dramatically.

https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0310017.pdf

Within this frame, which we can assume to be Solar System Barycentric (SSB), the differences between back-forth delay times that occur are in fact thousands of kilometers, very much larger than has been previously recognized by us or others. The problem is not rotation per se, but rather aberration due to motion and changes of orientation in the SSB frame.

Therefore the difference in path lengths for the ORBITAL SAGNAC is some 60 times greater than the difference in path lengths for the rotational Sagnac, according to these calculations.

TWO DIFFERENT FORMULAS.

One (CORIOLIS EFFECT) is proportional to the area of the interferometer.

The other (SAGNAC EFFECT) is proportional to the velocity of the light beams.

RING LASER GYROSCOPES RECORD ONLY THE FORMULA WHICH FEATURES THE AREA/ANGULAR VELOCITY, THAT IS, THE CORIOLIS EFFECT.

The much larger SAGNAC EFFECT is not recorded.

Make sure you understand these very important words coming from CALTECH:

Since now the local-ether model is acknowledged to exist, the same scientists have to deal with these statements attributed to Einstein:

Should the positive result be confirmed, then the special theory of relativity and with it the general theory of relativity, in its current form, would be invalid. Experimentum summus judex. Only the equivalence of inertia and gravitation would remain, however, they would have to lead to a significantly different theory."

Yes, that particular one, only a SINGLE velocity, so it clearly isn't describing a FOG rotating about a point outside its geometric centre, as if it was there would not just be a single velocity.

Instead it is describing one rotating about its geometric centre, where the 2 formulae are identical and which proves nothing like you claim.

Again, there are plenty of references, including plenty that you have provided, which clearly shows the formula is based upon the area and angular velocity.

In fact, that includes the paper you just cited, which you have dishonestly cut off.
What is the first formula presented in the paper (the actual paper, not the abstract which discussing the FOC)?
Deltat=4*A*Omega/c^2.

So are you going to accept your reference which clearly shows it is based upon an  area and an angular velocity? Or will you continue to reject it?

But as I said before, if you want to use any of those references, first admit that Earth is a round, rotating planet orbiting the sun.

If you aren't willing to do that, stop appealing to authorities you are blatantly misrepresenting, effectively lying about them (and some times directly lying about them).

Why is that such a mystery?
The southerly component involves no rotation, just a change in surface velocity so is the Coriolis effect.
The easterly component involves no change in the surface velocity but does involve rotation can be looked on as a Sagnac effect.

The important part you repeatedly overlook is that this is for a FOG rotating about its centre, where there is a single speed for the fibre.
It clearly is not being applied to a ring interferometer rotating about a point away from its centre as then you have multiple velocities to deal with.

As the paper is about FOC, it makes sense that they want to use the form with velocity. But that is not any absolute velocity.

Again, it clearly does not back you up.

For the first time ever, it was acknowledged that the SAGNAC EFFECT measured for the neutrino experiment is actually the CORIOLIS EFFECT.
You mean just like has been pointed out before, THEY ARE THE SAME THING!

Notice how they aren't saying that it is a fundamentally different effect with a different formula?
NO! They are saying the 2 are the same, that the Coriolis effect for objects is known as the Sagnac effect for light.

i.e. they are showing you are wrong, yet again. But you don't care. Even while directly quoting them for all to see your lie, you still blatantly lie about what they are saying and act like they back you up.

Now it dawns on those who study the field of light interferometry that there will always be TWO EFFECTS to deal with for each and every interferometer which is located away from the center of rotation: CORIOLIS EFFECT and the SAGNAC EFFECT.
Again, find a single citation from a reputable source which shows that.
So far all we have to indicate that is yourself.
Meanwhile, the very references you cite instead indicate that they are the same phenomenon.

Perhaps a more simple question:
How would you expect such phenomenon to manifest?

Starting nice and simple with experiments everyone can agree on, a circular ring interferometer rotating about its centre.
What shift should be observed?
Is it the Sagnac shift, repeatedly reported to have been observed, with a formula of Deltat=4*A*Omega/c^2, which is equal to 2*v*l/c^2?
Is it the Coriolis effect, with a formula of Deltat=2*v*l/c^2, which is equal to 4*A*Omega/c^2?
Is it both, because they are the same thing?
Or it is both, with both effects manifesting so you have the Sagnac shift, PLUS the Coriolis effect giving a total shift of 8*A*Omega/c^2 = 4*v*l/c^2, WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN OBSERVED?

A related question is what effect does the geometry of the loop has?
Does changing it from a circle to a square effect the shift? No.
So does that mean the formula you claim is for the Sagnac effect is actually variable and dependent upon the shape of the loop such that it always equals the formula you claim is just for the Coriolis effect?

TWO FORMULAS TO DEAL WITH: CORIOLIS AND SAGNAC.

FOR LISA, THE SAGNAC PHASE IS 30 TIMES LARGER THAN THE CORIOLIS EFFECT.

FOR THE SAME INTERFEROMETER.

And what are your expressions for the Sagnac delay (or phase) and the "Coriolis effect"?
Your own reference has "(https://www.dropbox.com/s/2pdckzeb10560ri/Sagnac%20Phase%20-%20Algebraic%20Approach%20.%20.%20.%20.%20.%20Orbiting%20LISA.png?dl=1)" for the Sagnac Phase, which seems to agree with everybody else but you.

And this is the expression for the Coriolis force: (https://wikimedia.org/api/rest_v1/media/math/render/svg/e4eb6b9a1018b1ffbdf7bdf9883a8b4e8bd7f8fb). Note this is a vector cross product whereas the Sagnac effect is proportional to the dot (or inner) vector product, quite different!

But none of the papers I've searched have mentioned "Coriolis". Including the above and:
The Effects of Orbital Motion on LISA Time Delay Interferometry by Neil J. Cornish and Ronald W. Hellings (https://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0306096.pdf).

The only link I've found so far, even between the words is this, which is clearly:
