WHETHER or not earthquakes are a major cause of the Earth's free Eulerian nutation (period of 14 months), widely known as the Chandler wobble, has been a controversial issue. The present consensus seems to be that the crustal deformation associated with earthquakes is much too small to explain the amplitude of the Chandler wobble.
