THE ROYAL Thai Navy’s Hydrographic Department will adjust the time by one second in order to meet international standards, deputy director Vice Admiral Jarin Bunmoah said yesterday.
Jarin said the revolution of the world had slowed down by a minuscule period over time, and if adjustments are not made regularly the deviation can add up to an hour every 100 years.
As per IERS standards, Thailand adjusted its time three years ago by one second.
Jarin said there was a need to adjust the time to prevent a negative impact on daily life and to adjust to natural changes such as the rising and setting of the sun.
The department announced that at midnight June 30 universal time, Thai time will be 7.00.01 July 1, which will be adjusted back to 7.00.00 to compensate and synchronise, Jarin explained.
