Marcus Kuhn and Rob Seaman have written very good appraisals of the situation
at hand.

May I humbly expand upon this and offer that it appears that we are
addressing an area approximately 150 kilometers x the surface area of the
earth, and in doing so with the gravitational factor of 9,81m/s2. As Markus
noted the oscillation, vibrations, etc. will serve the area noted in a
satisfactory manner. As scientist we have to always keep in mind that we are
dealing with less than 1% of 360 degrees, squared. (A similar "crude"
comparison may be reflecting back to the 12th century when everyone knew the
earth was flat)

In agreeing with Marcus Kuhn and Rob Seaman I would offer that we always
keep an open mind. If the present problem (solution) is to be correctly
resolved then later a study examining (understanding), then addressing the
totality of the 360 degrees, squared format, should be calculated and
presented completely for a review of the roundtable.

If not it seems we are destined to be "tossed about" by the accuracies of
physical elements that are able to be seen only and having a conclusion with
which is being proposed as the consensus opinion.
