An expedition under "Projet Rhéomarge" traced marine deposits along the Sénégal estuary. Leveled and dated samples have made it possible to reconstruct portions of paleogeoids of 6500, 5500, and 1800 years before present. The surfaces of these geoids show that the tilt across continental margins predicted by mathematical models is less than 1 meter from the coast to 120 kilometers inland.
