SUMMARY The incremental gravitational force (IGF) arises from perturbations of the earth's gravitational potential. In glacial isostasy, its sources are the surjicial and internal mass redistributions associated with the growth and decay of the continental ice sheets. We examine the errors caused by the neglect of the IGF using closed-form solutions of the equations governing surface-load induced perturbations of two types of incompressible, spherical-earth models: (1) Maxwellian-viscoelastic… CONTINUE READING
