Major Anomaly In Chandler's Wobble - 2005/2006

The Anomaly In The Earth’s Wobble Is?
Probably A Small Shifting of the Spin Axis.
I believe that we can begin to call what has happened in this year’s polar motion anomaly. Some uncertainty about the motion of the Spin Axis is still present but here is my prediction. Larry Parks (Terra Research) in an email message to me termed the anomaly a “cartioid loop”. This is a classic fractal function in which a new expanding spiral loop function spontaneously emerges out of a contracting loop.
