|Fig. 1 Area of sea level fall (SLF)|
We constantly hear "global mean average" sea level rise (SLR).
In a recent post I looked into an area where the fingerprint hypothesis, a concept that is founded on the physics of gravity, is clearly and firmly supported by the evidence (New Type of SLC Detection Model - 6).
Using a wide range of tide gauge station records from Alaska to Southern California, the SLC predicted by the "gravity-loss causes SLF" hypothesis, involving both SLF and SLR, was shown to be as predicted.
The area shown in Fig. 1 is another area where SLF is predicted by the hypothesis (see depiction in Fig. 2).
|Fig. 2 Baltic Sea & Gulf of Bothnia SLF|
I did graphs of tide gauge stations in these areas to test if SLF is real in those areas as hypothesized (Fig. 3 - Fig. 19).
The hypothesis holds up because there is serious SLF just like there was over at Glacier Bay in Alaska (Proof of Concept - 3).
In other words, there is no mention of SLF in the Discover article, nor is there any mention in the Alaska newspaper article that SLF is to be expected as the Glacier Bay ice melts and calves into the sea, thereby releasing the gravitational hold on the sea water near the coast.
And the comments show a general brain black-out in that regard, parroting the media induced trance like state of cluelessness (Choose Your Trances Carefully, 2, 3, 4, 5).
A publication that should know better went to great lengths to explain that any SLF is because the Earth is like the dood in the trivial lyrics: "like a rubber ball I'll come bouncing back to you."
The piece is without a mention of the word "gravity" or anything else essential (Why Are Sea Levels Dropping In Places Closest To The Melting Glaciers?).
When we look at the historical facts in tide gauge station records, we see SLF having taken place all through the areas that Greenland melt and Scandinavian glacial melt would be expected to cause SLF.
The evidence is unequivocal that even the Gulf of Bothnia and the Baltic Sea, colored blue in Fig. 2, has SLF exactly as expected, exactly as shown, an exactly as the science predicts.
The evidence is overwhelming that SLF takes place as ice-sheet-mass created gravity "melts and calves away into the Earth's greater gravity" even as the ice sheet itself melts and calves away into the greater sea.
The greater pool of the Earth's gravity absorbs the ice sheet gravity, then relocates it uniformly wherever the ice berg or melt-water goes.
The greater pool of the Earth's seas absorb the ice sheet melt water, and calving ice bergs, then relocates them in accord with the laws of physics.
The previous post in this series is here.
The following graphs are from a section (depicted in Fig. 1) of the "np" zone (New Type of SLC Detection Model - 4).
They exhibit SLF as expected:
