Using the Earth as a clock




This presentation points out that the Earth is a pretty accurate clock (on the order of 1 part in 10^9 error), but has some suggestions.

Earth as a frequency standard
Suggested improvements:

Thoroughly clean, and dry with cloth
Remove surrounding gas and water vapor
Wait for core to cool before use
Re-align axis of rotation (wobbling)
Keep away from nearby moon (tides)
Keep away from sun (tempco)
Re-adjust rate (avoid leap seconds)
