High-frequency earth rotation variations deduced from altimetry-based ocean tides

Madzak, Matthis ; Schindelegger, Michael ; Böhm, Johannes ; Bosch, Wolfgang ; Hagedoorn, Jan (2016)

A model of diurnal and semi-diurnal variations in Earth rotation parameters (ERP) is constructed based on altimetry-measured tidal heights from a multi-mission empirical ocean tide solution. Barotropic currents contributing to relative angular momentum changes are estimated for nine major tides in a global inversion algorithm that solves the two-dimensional momentum equations on a regular 0.5^\...
