Core Angular Momentum Change Data: Excess length of day in milliseconds over standard day of 86400 seconds
Entry ID: IERS_GGFC_SBC_CAM_LOD

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Core angular momentum (CAM) is estimated by various researchers
using various modelling hypotheses applied to magnetic data. CAM is
then transformed into change in the length of day (LOD). Data is
expressed as excess length of day in milliseconds over a standard day
of 86400 seconds.
