This paper describes the analysis, implementation and performance of a new clock synchronization algorithm, which utilizes the physical properties of synthetic quartz crystals. Thus a very high accuracy (down to a few milliseconds) can be achieved. This algorithm adjusts itself to the preferences of the local quartz oscillator and dynamically to the changing environment conditions such as temperature, and humidity via a additional phase locked loop control loop. As the computing and bandwidth requirements could be kept pretty low, this algorithm could be very well used in mobile environment.
