How does GMT work?

Greenwich Mean Time is the yearly average (or ‘mean’) of the time each day when the Sun crosses the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory Greenwich. Essentially, mean time is clock time rather than solar (astronomical) time.

How GMT is calculated?

Greenwich Mean Time is calculated by using the sun. When the sun is at its highest point, exactly above the Prime Meridian, this means that it is 12:00 noon at Greenwich. The Prime Meridian is the imaginary line that splits the Earth up into two equal halves: the Western Hemisphere and the Eastern Hemisphere.
