Abstract The time laboratories realize a stable local time scale using individual atomic clocks or a clock ensemble. Clock readings are then combined at the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM) through an algorithm designed to raise the stability, accuracy and reliability of the time scale above the level of performance that can be realized by any individual clock in the ensemble.
