MSSA of globally gridded OAM from ECCO, AAM from ECMWF, and gravity from GRACE

P. 127-132.
Zotov L., Scheplova E.

Multichannel singular spectrum analysis (MSSA) is applied to the globally gridded oceanic angular momentum (OAM) data from ECCO (KF080) model, Atmospheric Angular Momentum from ECMWF model, and Earth gravity field from GRACE satellites. Principal components of the oceanic, atmospheric, and hydrological changes and their influence on the rotation of the Earth (polar motion PM and length of day LOD) are extracted. The regions where mass and motion terms make the largest input into PM excitation and LOD changes are identified. The trends, annual, and other global-scale modes are separated. Multichannel singular spectrum analysis is found to be a promising method for signal filtering and modes decomposition. Possible connections between climate change and Earth rotation are discussed.
