MIMA MOUNDS are an excellent target for MEASUREMENT of EARTH TIDES’ UPLIFT RATE, since they exhibit DIAMETER INCREASE while RISING! The example of the Holmes Harbor Golf Course, near Honeymoon Bay Road from Freeland, WA can be used to “HOME IN” on the MECHANISM and RATES found from this STACKED ELLIPTICAL SET of 2 young features:
Using the average PRESENT DIAMETER of 5 meters (5000 mm), the dome has increased by at least 1 mm/year (1.024 by BINARY THEOREM). This yields an INITIATION TIME (start of the UPLIFT CYCLE) of no more than 5000 years (ago)! This is well past the ICE AGE, which is CONFIRMED by the EXOTIC BOULDER surrounded by the later mounds. The boulder would not have been dropped from sliding ice should the mounds have been present- since sliding ice would have “PLANED” the landscape!
This calculation informs me that the Mounds have nothing to do with the ICE AGE directly, and considering that the UPPER ELLIPTICAL ARRAY of smaller mounds (YOUNGER) has uplifted at half of the 1 mm/yr. expansion rate. The calculation yields 10,000 years- several thousand past the last stage of ice!
You might remark that I usually invoke the EARTH TIDAL rate of at least 10.24 mm/yr. for calculations (20.48 for NW movements). True, which is correct for LATERAL movement, NOT UPLIFT. Appropriate uplift relates to the expansion=UPLIFT of the CONTINENTAL ORB- which I have found for 3 cases is 1.024 km/m.y. for NA, SA, Australia and the African continent west of the RIFT ZONE.
The result is that the 1.024mm/yr. DIAMETER INCREASE is likely appropriate, and that the (BINARY THEOREM) AGE is 4096 years since the mounds started to rise! What would occasion this? Alternatively, what about the Holmes Harbor N-S movement is of this age? Holmes is NOT the last lobe- being followed by westward-moving Penn Cove- and it is near 1.75 km wide, resulting in a CALCULATON of 1.75/17.48 km/m.y.= 100,000 years (Milankovitch’s Elliptical cycle) AGE.
Last RATIO INCORPORATED is the INCLINATION above the Solar Ecliptic PLANE, where, e.g. Pluto planetoid/Asteroid Ceres= 17.141/10.58 degrees= 1.62. This hints that even the MINOR MASSES have been GRAVITATIONALLY POSITIONED by the SUBTLE gravitation FIELD!
