Anomalies in the Earth rotation and Syzygies in Perigee

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 8 (2023), Issue 5, pg(s) 166-168

    In 2022 the Erath rotation velocity reached its maximum and in 2017-2020 the Chandler wobble of the rotational axis disappeared for the second time in the history of observations. Unexplained modulations of 90 and 20-25 year periods are observed. They reflect geophysical processes in the atmosphere, ocean, and Earth’s interior and can be linked to climate. It is important to understand their causes and predict them for navigation etc. We found out, that the orientation of the lunar orbital plain and position of perigee revolves in such manner, that their mutual positions repeat with 90-year semi-periods at the minimum of the Chandler wobble. At the same time synodic period of syzygies in perigee (every 412 days) with respect to the position of the Chandler pole (433 days) rotates within ~22-23 years. We have collected arguments in favor of the hypothesis that the mass flows and redistribution within the Earth systems under the influence of apsidal-nodal effects of luni-solar tide could be responsible for the above mentioned modulations in the Earth rotation.

  • Open data for cities – modern asset to data-driven economy

    Innovations, Vol. 7 (2019), Issue 1, pg(s) 37-39

    This article aims to share results and practices of the research group at VFU in partnership with ICT Cluster-Varna for developing open data solutions for the city of Varna. The final goal is the establishment of open data platform for the city of Varna, Bulgaria. The results from the project Open Data for Smart Cities where API for specific open data for cultural heritage was developed under the funding from Varna – European Youth Capital 2017 and was also presented. Some new business models concerning data is summarized as the bases for new innovative software solutions.
