The problem of the correlation of the global dynamic phenomenon “Chandler wobble” with the local dynamics in different parts of the Earth’s crust and lithosphere is wide of the solution. In this study, an attempt was made to approach the solution by analyzing the temporal variations of local seismic activity in the restricted geospace volumes (GSV) within the uniform seismoactive regions. The driver of Chandler wobble is the deep mantle – the most hard and most massive Earth’s layer, whose large inertia tensor value is able to keep up Chandler’s specific rotation of the Earth for a long time. We use the geocentric coordinate system where daily rotation is absent. In this system Chandler wobble is very slow rotation of the Earth around the current equatorial axis (the pole of which is denoted as EP14). Probably, this slow rotation can influence on the seismic events in the GSV. This influence is proposed to determine by the some statistical parameter EP14gsv that indicates the most typical position EP14 on equator when the most part of the earthquakes have occurred in the given GSV. For some geospace volumes the distribution indicates certain longitudes, where the number of seismic events is maximal or minimal.
