Shortened Earth Days ?

Recent earth earthquakes in the world (particularly the one in Chili) may have shortened the length of each Earth day, reported in the ScienceDaily. The scientists computed how Earth’s rotation should have changed as a result of the latest 8.8 earhquake. After using all complex computing systems, it has been arrived that the length of an Earth’s day has been shortened by about 1.26 microseconds. Furthermore, the Earth’s axis is shifted around 8 cm ! These results will be refined when more data related to the recent earthquake comes.
