Long-term fluctuations in the Earth’s rotation: 700 BC to AD 1990
Records of solar and lunar eclipses in the period 700 BC to AD 1600, originating from the ancient and medieval civilizations of Babylon, China, Europe and the Arab world, are amassed and criticallyExpand

Re-determination of the decade fluctuations in the rotation of the Earth in the period 1861–1978
Summary The ‘decade’ fluctuations in the Earth's rate of rotation are derived from a comparison of the universal time-scale, based on the Earth's diurnal rotation, with: (a) the dynamicalExpand

Rotation of the Earth from AD 1663–1972 and the Constancy of G
TIMINGS of 40,000 lunar occultations of stars from 1943–1972 have recently been analysed to determine improvements to the Moon's orbital elements, and difference between the ephemeris (ET), universalExpand

Fluctuations in the Earth's rotation since 1830 from high-resolution astronomical data
SUMMARY Fluctuations in the Earth's rotation since 1830, as evidenced by changes in the length of the day, are derived from astronomical data having subannual resolution. Before 1955.5, timings ofExpand
