Detection of 16 Small Glitches in Nine Pulsars

Pulsar timing measurements with a 26 m radio telescope at Nanshan between 2000 and 2014 were used to search for glitch events. The data span of nine pulsars ranges from 11.6 to 14.2 yr, and 16 new glitch events were identified in nine pulsars. Glitch parameters were determined through fitting the timing residuals data. All 16 glitches have a small fractional size. Six new glitches have been detected in PSR J1833−0827, making it another frequent glitching pulsar. Some of the 16 glitches may experience exponential or linear recovery, but it is unlikely for us to make further analyses with the large gap in the data set. All the glitch rates obtained from Nanshan are higher than that from Jodrell Bank Observatory. The small glitch size and high glitch rate could possibly attribute to the high observation cadence.
