The study of the Earth’s rotation in space addresses the complex nature of Earth orientation changes, the mechanismus of excitation of these changes and their geophysical implications in a droad variety of areas.

The rotation rate of the Earth’s crust is not constant, but exhibits complicated fluctuations in speed amounting to several parts in 108 (corresponding to a variation of several milliseconds (ms) in the lingth of the day (LOD)). These changes occur over a broad spectrum of the time scales, ranging from hours to centuries and longer, reflecting the fact they are produced by a wide variety of geophysical and astronomical processes.

The spectral structure of experimental time series is determined with the help modified per by a method two-channel autoregressions spectral power density. Results of comparison of time series give the basis to speak about high coordination of fluctuations with the periods about 73 year.
