Yes. The SI second is defined independent of any reference frame. The
TAI second is the SI second as realised on the geoid. There are other
timescales that are based on SI seconds in particular reference frames,
most notably TCG and TCB.

HUMBER THAMES DOVER WIGHT PORTLAND: NORTH BACKING WEST OR NORTHWEST, 5 TO 7,
DECREASING 4 OR 5, OCCASIONALLY 6 LATER IN HUMBER AND THAMES. MODERATE OR
ROUGH. RAIN THEN FAIR. GOOD.
