Theoretical Limits: Exploring the Depths of Earth’s Ocean Trenches

Ocean trenches are the deepest parts of the world’s oceans and are found primarily in the Pacific Ocean. These trenches are formed by the movement of tectonic plates and can reach depths of more than 7 miles (11 kilometers). However, given the extreme conditions at these depths, it is natural to wonder how much deeper

Geodynamic Limits of Polar Water Distribution: Exploring the Minimum Equatorial and Tidal Bulge

The Earth is a dynamic system that is constantly undergoing changes that affect the distribution of water and land. One of the most important factors affecting the distribution of water on Earth is the equatorial bulge and the tidal bulge. The equatorial bulge is the phenomenon whereby the Earth is not a perfect sphere but
