1 Simulation, prediction and analysis of Earth rotation parameters with a dynamic Earth system model Florian Seitz Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE)
2 Earth rotation parameters and their physical interpretation Besides their necessity for various applications (e.g., the realisation of time and reference systems, navigation) Earth rotation parameters (ERP) are interesting for various disciplines of geosciences, since dynamic processes in the Earth system are reflected in their temporal variations. Analysis of ERP time series allows for conclusions with respect to processes and changes in the Earth system on various temporal scales However: Since ERP are integral quantities their physical interpretation is very difficult: Specific features in the time series cannot be related to contributions of individual system components particular causative processes without further information Independent information from physical modelling is required 2
3 Physical model of Earth rotation Development of the physically consistent and comprehensive Dynamic Earth System Model DyMEG: Composed of a discrete number of interacting system components Consistent modelling of rotational variations gravity field variations geometrical surface variations that are caused by various dynamic processes in the Earth system Focus of this presentation: Model results for interannual variations of polar motion caused by processes in the coupled atmospherehydrosphere h h system. 3

5 Balance of angular momentum in the Earth system The model approach for Earth rotation is based on the balance of angular momentum in an Earthfixed coordinate system (EulerLiouville Equation): d dt with angular momentum L(t): I(t): h(t): ω(t): H( t) + ω(t) H( t) = L( t) external gravitational torques (Sun, Moon, planets) Earth s tensor of inertia relative angular momenta Earth rotation vector H( t) = I( t)ω( t) + h() t Numerical solution of the EulerLiouville Equation for ω(t) in DyMEG: Simulation of polar motion and the Earth s angular velocity (ΔLOD). 5

12 Strongest contributor to Chandler excitation? (Atmosphere: Mass + Motion) (Atmosphere + Ocean: Motion) (Atmosphere: Motion) (Ocean: Mass + Motion) (Atmosphere + Ocean: Mass) (Ocean: Motion) (Atmo. + Ocean: Mass + Motion) atmosphere a bit stronger than the ocean wind dominates motion significantly stronger the mass 12
13 Final remarks and conclusions Simulations with DyMEG allow for a meaningful geophysical interpretation of ERP Naturally, the interpretability of model results depends on the applied forcing ECOCTH allows for statistical interpretations of longterm variations of ERP. ECOCTH is capable of producing realistic variations of the Chandler oscillation Experiments reveal the dominance of wind excitation (=random white noise) for the continuous forcing of the Chandler oscillation. 13
