It's not noise. It's the signal. It's the forcing, just like the daily or annual signal
See those sideband satellites highlighted in yellow about the daily harmonics (marked by red)? That's clearly a fortnightly tidal modulation.

It's not that. They may be OK, but apparently not as proficient as me. This stuff is simple compared to 3-D inverse diffraction tomography.
