THE rate at which tidal energy is dissipated in the solid Earth can constrain the anelastic properties of the Earth at frequencies much lower than those accessible with seismology. The dissipative properties of a system are usually expressed as a 'quality factor', Q; estimates1–7 of the semi-diurnal solid-Earth Q range from 90 to 500. But observational constraints on this quantity are difficult to obtain, because dissipation by the body tide is masked by the much greater dissipation that occurs… Expand
