A note on secular variation of gravity due to non-tidal geodynamic phenomena

  • Milan Burša
  • Z. Šimon


Secular non-tidal variations of geopotential and gravity are estimated due to secular decrease of the second zonal geopotential harmonic, secular polar motion and deceleration of the Earth's rotation.
