in case the Earth, the circular frequency of the Earth is equal of a 
sinusoidal wave's frequency, which is a projection of the Earth circular 
movement in a plain, which is perpendicular to the axis of the Earth. 
The Q of the Earth in interpreted as the quotient of the phase speed of 
the  Earth's  circular rotation [or the projected wave's] and the 
fluctuation of the phase speed.
