Shortt Pendulum Clock Performance

Below is a frequency stability plot of a Shortt Pendulum Clock based on real data collected at USNO some decades ago. Statistics were made using the "many tau" and "overlapping" Allan deviation method in order to maximize the resolution. One can see tidal effects in this data. See also Stability of Planet Earth.
