Chandler Wobble, earthquakes, rotation, and geomagnetic changes

Subjects

Abstract

A pattern recognition algorithm can be applied to the seismicity of major earthquake belts, to the amplitudes of Chandler Wobble, to changes in the rotational velocity of the Earth, and to the drift of the eccentric geomagnetic dipole for the years 1901–64. The patterns which emerged suggest that all of these diverse phenomena are related.
