Satellite data since 1998 indicates the bulge in the Earth's gravity field at the equator is growing, and scientists think that the ocean may hold the answer to the mystery of how the changes in the trend of Earth's gravity are occurring.
Currently, the Earth has a significant upward bulge at the equator, and a downward bulge at the poles. "Observations of the Earth's gravity field show that some phenomena are counteracting the gravitational effects of PGR. Whereas PGR has been decreasing the bulge in the Earth's gravity field at the equator, this recent phenomena is causing the bulge to increase," Cox said. Such changes in the gravity field can be sensed using ultra precise laser tracking of satellites to observe tiny changes in the orbits of those satellites and by tracking changes in the length of day or rotation of the Earth.
Scientists believe movements of mass cause this recent change from the high latitudes to the equator. Bulge!
The story is about the equatorial bulge growing, apparently quite rapidly.Are melting polar ice fields sending enormous volumes of water into the bulge? Can a tipping point be reached where gravity overcomes centrifugal force sending the pent up equatorial bulge into a catastrophic release? Could this be the mechanism of the "Noah flood" phenomena.
For me, that is not the story at this moment, the story is why has so very little follow up been published since the discovery was made?
In subsequent posts we will explore the situation more... for now this will suffice to set the stage.
