Calculation details for Bulge Effects

Now that you are familiar with the basic calculations, take another look.

This time pay attention only to whatever is being assumed at each step of the way. How much would the final number be altered by making changes in the various working assumptions.

For example: what if another figure was used to represent the depth of the bulge?

Which assumptions should be updated, based on information available now that was either unavailable in the 1950's or radically different then?

How do those changes alter the final numbers?

How do different numbers impact the overall pole-shift argument?

How large is the role of isostacy in these calculations?
