- Table 1:
Excess of LOD (s) due to zonal tides from IERS Conventions 2003, relative variations of the Earth's rotation rate
*m*_{3}^{z} (10^{-12} rad) and *c*_{33}/*C* (as) from Eqs. (11) and (12).
- Table 2:
Effect of zonal variations in Earth's rotation: artefacts induced by omitting the variations when transforming the torque from the celestial frame to the terrestrial frame compared to the values of Bretagnon et al. (2001), and net contribution.
- Table 3:
Effects of the second order contribution of the tidal potential (zonal tides contribution) on nutation angles (as) and precession (as/c) from different studies. MHB 2000Z: values of Mathews et al. (2002) including only the zonal tides contribution; SF99: Souchay & Folgueira (2000).
