Abstract: Based on the manifestly covariant formulation of the Noether charge for Chern- Simons terms we proposed in arXiv:1407.6364, we compute the entropy and asymptotic charges for the rotating charged-AdS black holes in higher dimensions at leading order of the fluid/gravity derivative expansion in the Einstein-Maxwell-Chern-Simons system. Our results confirm the predictions from the CFT replacement rule of the anomaly-induced entropy current and stress tensor/current.
