Non-Tidal Ocean Excitation Functions
Non-tidal ocean excitation functions (CHI) can be readily integrated into polar motion by means of the Liouville equation. Excitation functions consider the rotational deformation of the Earth and its associated passive response of equilibrium oceans, the relative angular momentum of the Earth's core, and the effects of mantle anelasticity. CHI is linearly derived from non-tidal ocean angular momentum as described by Gross (2009).
