Reconstruction of prograde and retrograde Chandler excitation

Journal of Inverse and Ill-posed problems. 2015. Vol. 24. No. 1. P. 99-105.
Zotov L., Bizouard C.

Observed polar motion consists of uniform circular motions at both positive (prograde) and negative (retrograde) frequencies. Generalized Euler–Liouville equations of Bizouard, taking into account Earth's triaxiality and asymmetry of the ocean tide, show that the corresponding retrograde and prograde circular excitations are coupled at any frequency. In this work, we reconstructed the polar motion excitation in the Chandler band (prograde and retrograde). Then we compared it with geophysical excitation, filtered out in the same way from the series of the Oceanic Angular Momentum (OAM) and Atmospheric Angular Momentum (AAM) for the period 1960–2000. The agreement was found to be better in the prograde band than in the retrograde one.
