Gravitational ATTRACTION of the separate Planets for portions of the Earth's CRUST creates UPLIFT, or rise: this is seen for Sand Mountain, UT, where the lateral dimension is determined by the Planet's Inclination x 111.111km/degree, and the DIP Angle by the Inclination. The Moon is dominant, with its 5.145 degree tilt and its N-S Meridianal traverse, and Planetoids, Asteroids are Minor, with SCALING of 1000th or meters/degree.

Sand Mountain, a Jurassic Navaho sandstone UPLIFT, exhibits a RISE and its particular Bedding DIP Angle, which compared to the Moon is 5.145 degrees (a VERTICAL movement). This introduces theTOPIC of the projection of an Individual Planet's GRAVITATIONAL ATTRACTION for small portions of the Crust:

COLOR CODE is as follows: red, for COMPRESSION or Rising; blue for EXTENSION or Sinking; black for FACTUAL Information; Pink for scenarios; yellow for location or OUTCROPS; green for measurement, and white for N-S linears.
A change I have incorporated since previous publications is the FINDING that Moons create Orthogonal influences, compared to Planets and Asteroids. This is similar to STRIKE (Horizontal, by large orbits around the sun) as referred to DIP (vertical, moon orbits around Planets), in Geological TERMINOLOGY. This will require a REVISION of previous blogs, where the Moon's 5.145 degree Inclination angle was tested on Lateral Shifts. This is INCORRECT, as will be found in the following photos!
SHEAR ARCS are shown below, and they are mostly CONCENTRIC- portraying the EXPANSION, with Time, of the RISE of a dome around a Central FOCUS (the location of the initial UPLIFT). They appear to be LINEARS or straight lines, and on a small scale they are, but they appear ARCUATE, from an elevated PERSPECTIVE, and the arc SEGMENT multiplied by 360 degrees/angle subtended/(pi= 3.1416)= the DIAMETER. The diameter, divided by the Trigonometric sine of the angle CONVERSION, towards which the convex arc is pointing, yields the TIME Interval or, if ongoing, the AGE. This is shown below:

The TRIGONOMETRIC Conversion is shown with the following DIAGRAM; use this for calculating Time Intervals:
COMMON conversions are: 10.24 km/m.y. (mm/yr is EQUIVALENT) for the East CONVEX angle to which the arc points; 20.48 for the NW direction, 27.72 for West, 16.24 for South, and 30.72 mm/yr for SW pointing Convex Arcs. , e.g. left facing (
Below is a Large VIEW of the Sand Mountain, Sand Hollow BORDER, Utah (near St. George, UT) showing both the RISE and the SINK:
Notice that the RISE, which is higher in elevation (left of the half Figure 8 in the middle of the photo, that is an UPLIFT, laterally-expanding), displays linears at variable angles to a N-S line, while the SINK (right), which attracts eroding particles, has NO obvious linears, only vague arcs.

SINKS formed whenever there is PLANETARY ATTRACTION of Earth portions from the opposite side of the Sun (conjunction of Sun + Planet, both on the same side of the Earth), are created by the attraction for the far side of Earth's SURFACE towards the center of the Earth. This occurs during a portion of each Planet's ORBIT, and in between this Attraction from 2 opposing locations (upward or downward, when the Planet is behind the Sun), there is LATERAL SHEAR as the planet moves in a PATH which is adjacent or parallel to the Region or location (subject to the Gravitational FORCE)!
This is shown in a DIAGRAM below:

Applying the Solar Planetary Inclinations with a REGIONAL Perspective, the Planets influence ONLY a Portion of the Earth's Crust (the part that they either attract upward or downward, during a PLANETARY ORBIT):
This is SIMPLIFIED with a 3 cell DIAGRAM, using a half Globe or Hemisphere distribution as a background (easily remembered for field work, where the divider may be a line, RISE, or separation) with Hills, Valleys, and Protrusions such as insertions of ANOMALOUS  features between different elevation Mounds, Sinks, or Scarps (shown as a divider:"TIT" from the south, or Linear separator):

SINKS are exemplified by the Arctic Ocean, which is round and is NOT influenced by the Sun, being above the Arctic Circle:

The DIVIDER, Linear Separator, or intruding "TIT" from the south, is shown for Lake Malheur, Oregon, and this separates an Evaporitic Playa (white dry lake) from its parent, the deep Lake Malheur (rounded feature to upper right).This is a Geological Field Case, for PRACTICAL use of the 3 Cell diagram or MODEL:

Evaporitic Lake, above 4097 feet elevation, is younger than the WIDER, DEEPER, Higher in Elevation (4106 ft.) Lake Malheur, and has been separated from it by the intruding "TIT" from the south (4112 ft.):
ELEVATIONS are shown above, and the expanded view, below:

Demonstrating that the MODEL may be used in the Field, for Structural Geology, follow this case of an OUTCROP of Jn, Jurassic Navaho sandstone, located in the Grapevine Wash, near I-15, east of St. George, north of Washington City, UT:
This remnant of Sandstone, shaped by EROSION, exhibits ALL of the elements of the 3 CELL Model, reinforced by Gravitational ROTATION, SHEAR, and Hardening from Compaction-compression. You may ask: "What's erosion got to do with Gravitation, other than to make rocks FALL?" Answer is that Gravity first forms the shear PATH, and erosion follows the SHEAR! Look at all sides, and you will see the SLICE (from fracturing), the 2 distinct CELLS, and the "Tit" Terrace on the north side:

North view, above shows SLICE and TILT of the Minor or PRECESSIONAL Cell, compared to the longer remnant on the right- which is the Level Axial Cell, above. Below is the view from the South. The RATIO of Axial/Precessional length may be appraised by your "eyeballs" as about 4 to 1, which is that for Mercury (365.24 days, Earth/87.97, Mercury)= 4.152. The Tilt of the smaller remnant is near 5 degrees, which is the Inclination of our Moon. These 2 bodies effect perpendicular MOVEMENTS, Vertical for the Moon,and Lateral for the Planet Mars. I assume that all planets will yield lateral indications, while Moons, which orbit around the Planets, will yield DIPS and Vertical information!
The TERRACE, which is the "TIT", advances from the Splice, and is "fixed" by the rise, due to reduced EROSION with Compaction, Compression and HARDENING from Twist and Squeezing:
Field Geologists should "MEMORIZE this 3 CELL Model, and use it for PREDICTIONS of angles, Terraces, Ratios, Dips, and Horizontal BEDDING in the field!"

(to the cadence of Sullivan’s “A Modern Major General”)

A Fight Song
We trod the beaches of the land, with footprints so magnificent,
We take good care and prudence, since we’re seemingly significant;
We are geological, with thoughts so ecological-
We solve the island’s many myths, with motives almost nearly always logical.

We step o’er rock and fragile stone, with boundless love resilient,
Our thoughts, forever prime, are always bordering on the brilliant-
We zig and zag, it’s in the bag, the secrets of a stratigraphic crag,
Our yards are always full of Nature’s bounteous anticlinal swag.
We look at cave and cliff, for clues that often are mysterious,
We form our explanations, which then sometimes are delirious;
We’re ever right, with thoughts so bright, the clays we test with subtle bite,
The Mastodons we lately seek, are almost always out of sight.

We sniff the waters of the seeps, which are mostly full of Carbonate,
We draw straight lines on maps, over which we then can fulminate-
We look not for the animal, not vegetable, but mineral,
We seek to find the local sense of Earthy Science-in-General.

We find the island’s many faults are certainly near left-lateral
The moraines make Points, but Heads (Tombolos) are quaintly mostly platter-al,
We are Geological, with thoughts so ecological-
We solve the islands many myths, with motives almost nearly always logical.

Our rare scientific group is most certainly gregarious;
With the exception of a stately few, they are hardly e’er nefarious-
They most certainly show attentiveness, to the total group’s inventiveness
They never forget a single clue, keeping constant retentiveness.

We’re constantly amused almost, by the manly interaction,
Of the way they stand their solid ground, while their stomachs are in traction-
While some will look at cuttle fish, rarely they’re rebuttal-ish,
They follow simply to a man, the leader’s every whim and wish.

They never waste a word or deed, showing ultimate economy;
They incorporate all useful fields, even invertebrate Taxonomy-
They map all Points, align all Joints,
Whenever it is possible, they listen to whomever USGS anoints.

We march out in the sand-filled fields, with ultimate sobriety;
Then we announce our final facts, with tremendous notoriety;
We use all of our abilities, with promising agilities
Before there is a final loss of all of our facilities.

We incorporate every certain fact, remaining ever all aghast;
With completely serious rectitude, we follow an iconoclast!
We are Geological, with thoughts so ecological-
We solve the islands many myths, with motives nearly always almost logical.

Returning to the desert,
Specifically, for the SINK of Sand Hollow, UT:

Below are several VIEWS of Sand Hollow and Mountain, which will be used for a MODEL:
There is an INTERSECTION of LINEARS at the red caption; this exhibits ANGULAR SHIFTS for all 4 lineations, indicating that there is a DISCONTINUITY across the contact.
The DIVIDER, which is a SAND LINE (a portion remaining unlined for inspection, to the SW, which shifts a small amount) noticed whenever the loose sand is blown onto the paved road shown above, and this is re-plotted in a LARGER VIEW below:
The SKYLINE is a reference:
MEASUREMENT of the Sand Line ANGLE, is a reference for the next OLDER Linear, between which there is an angle CHANGE:
Angle change is slightly more than 1 degree, and it will be more carefully re-measured:
A more careful sand line ORIENTATION is measured, and it has a SHIFT of 1.26 degrees. REFER to Jupiter- which has an Inclination of 1.304 degrees from the Ecliptic Plane, below; this is a deviation of .044 degrees or 3% (the error of my measurement):

Consistency is shown for the SAND LINE south of the UPLIFT:

This MODEL will be tested on other ANOMALIES in Qsna, the North American Quadrant, with a view towards determining UNIVERSAL FEATURES, such as the applicability of Planetary Inclinations to cases NOT aligned in a N-S orientation.  This should be documented with smaller and larger SCALES, such as the numerous LINEARS shown in the Zion NP Uplift of 2-4 million years.
Below photo is "Zoomed in" to the Virgin River half Figure 8, or Partial ANALEMMA:

There are 2 angles which must be incorporated into an evaluation of Planetary Inclination INFLUENCE on Crustal OUTCROPS:
Several VARIABLES are shown on this DIAGRAM for Earth and Moon: Inclination and Tilt to the Ecliptic Plane; separation of Earth and Moon between centers, and between Center of Mass and Earth center (Barycenter); and tilt of Moon to its orbital Plane. Used entities are:
1. DIP Angle, which correlates with the Moon Inclination, for the Sand Mountain UPLIFT; and,
2. Lateral SHIFT, which is perpendicular (Orthogonal) to the dip, and which correlates well with angles between Fractures. Earth and Moon oscillate MONTHLY about the Barycenter, and this results in sinusoidally-traced river paths, as the water shifts each month from one bank to the other with the slight tilt change (called Meanders).

Ganymede, above is the Largest Moon in the Solar System!
Let's use the Jovian Moons, 67 or so at present count, as a start for the dips found near the Sand Mountain feature; Honeymoon Trail SPIRAL (km diameter), and the Hurricane Fault, Hf, bedding SCARP near the east side of the Honeymoon Canyon and a 2 km distance to the east.
Initially, refer to Moons Himalia, Leda, and Lysithea, with Inclinations near 28 degrees:

Literature-reported Jovian Moon (Jupiter's) Inclinations:
Callisteo and Ganeymede have .192 to .195 degrees, too small to measure or incorporate;
Moon Europa has .47 degrees, in order of increasing MAGNITUDE;
Io has 2.21 degrees, and thereafter the Inclinations are USEFUL for significant DIP Angles;
Leda has 26.07 degrees; Himalia 27.5d; and Lysithea 29.5 degrees, which can be differentiated with Google Earth Measuring TOOL:
The DIP of the south BEDDING (on the right) is near zero, visually, COMPARED to that of about 20 degrees (to the north) and near zero in the distance. This preliminarily "FITS" with the lesser Jovian Inclinations, until I can MEASURE more carefully with a Tiltmeter-COMPASS!
Now, measure the DIP Angle on the Colorado Plateau above, 2 km to the east:

I have hiked this CANYON, and there are STEEP DIPS immediately off the gravel Road leading to the Honeymoon Trail Road:
The vertical Face ANGLES at Hf have been measured by compass, but I have NOT measured the DIPS:
Above compass measurements are POSTED on the Google Earth photo; they indicate that the larger ARC is indented with smaller cycles, for the Honeymoon Trail SLOT Canyon:

Digital camera shot to North, viewing the EASIEST entrance by auto across the Honeymoon Canyon wash:
The TRAIL climbs up one of the few breaks in the Hurricane Fault:
Honeymoon Hike WAYPOINTS:
SLICKENSIDES show the ANGLE of rise or descent, and the near LATERAL lines:
2 km to the east, there is the DIPPING strata of near 20 degrees, shown ORTHOGONALLY:
Other Jovian Moons have been measured for their Inclinations, and they vary from 30.646 degrees for Moon Elara, 45.76d (Thermistro), 58d (Caspo), to those which are almost perpendicular (retrograde) in their ORBIT around Jupiter, such as 150.187 degrees for Ananke. One can IMAGINE that these create Large Angle bedding on Earth, but the proof must be found from the Gravitation Equation:
Force = (Mass of Earth x mass of Jupiter's Moon)/separation squared x a Constant.
Using Ganeymede (the most massive) as an example, compared to Earth's Moon:
Relative ratio= Moon Mass/moon mass/(distance to our Moon/distance to Ganeymede) squared=
7.35exp22 kg/1.482exp23. 2.016 ratio, for mass; 1,070,400 km from Jupiter, or mean distance from Earth of 588 million km; Moon distance is 384,400km, and the ratio squared= 1531.25 squared= 2.344exp6. Overall ratio for the 2 Moons is 2.344/2.02= 1,160,756, or easily remembered as (M/Sun ratio of 2.16- 1)x million. M/S is still being averaged for most LIKELY RATIO!
The MILLION RATIO of our Moon to the influence of Ganeymede suggests that the Jupiter moon creates an area of INFLUENCE of  20,000km hemisphere/million, or a .02 km (20 meters or 2000 cm) wide circle. This could MODIFY by about 65 feet the formation of the Colorado Plateau, and if true, and would reinforce the influence of Venus- the usual suspect. This seems insignificant, for this Jovian moon, which has the LARGEST MASS of all Solar System satellites! A FACTOR NOT considered is the closest separation which is less than for Jupiter, about which it orbits! The orbit around Jupiter is 1.07 million km, and this subtracted from Jupiter's separation is only about a quarter percent change (insignificant).
 The CASE of Ganeymede can be EVALUATED as to the Bedding Angle, where there is a .195 degree DIP up to the west. Sine of the angle= tan angle= angle in RADIANS for small angles, and this is  .195 x 20 meters/57.3 degrees per radian, for the Colorado Plateau= .068 meters or 68 mm for elevation change. This would create such features as FRACTURES in outcrop Polygons, as Ganeymede moves in its ORBIT around Jupiter (with its 11.8 Earth year orbit). The quarter percent variation during the Moon orbit creates a .17 mm fracture width, and this is sufficient for Life, such as ANTS in anthills, to take temporary advantage of the openings and enlarge their cavities. Notice the FRACTURE PATTERNS, below, and the shift from RECTANGLES to Polygons with more than 4 sides in the sandstone below, upon surmounting the rise (indicating this small change of elevation and angle of attact determines the number of sides in POLYGONS). The Exterior Planet "SEES" the rise presented more directly BELOW it, and ROTATES it more than it does the slanted sides, recalling that Moons create vertical changes, while Planets effect Lateral SHFTS:

Above OUTCROP of Navaho sandstone is found north of St. George, UT, in the Snow Canyon State Park, at the western edge of the Colorado Plateau:
POLYGONS are RARE, and these can be found at Yellow Knolls, off I-15 Feeder on the North side, driving north. A Hexagon has been photographed for the Atmosphere of Saturn:

The SLICE and Hole phenomenon is exhibited on many scales, from a HAND SAMPLE to the North Pacific OFFSHORE the Strait of Juan de Fuca; this is a Lateral Gravitational feature, which is associated with ANALEMMA-SHAPED arrangements on the Earth's Crust.

SUMMARY: Crustal slices, or Lateral Movement along an Earth fault, occur throughout the Shallow CRUST; they ALIGN with Circular HOLES, either through the center, or closer to the edge of the ARCS. They PRIMARILY orient North to South, but may occur at other angles, whenever there occurs a Significant Geological ANOMALY.
The Strait of Juan de Fuca is a SLICE, where a significant angular SHIFT is made at CRITICAL COORDINATES, above, and the San Juan Islands displays a "HOLE" to the EAST, below:

Above is the JdF "Hole", part of an ANALEMMA (Figure 8), and below is a LARGER View:
 COLOR CODE is as follows: red, for COMPRESSION or Rising; blue for EXTENSION or Sinking; black for FACTUAL Information; Pink for scenarios; yellow for location or OUTCROPS; green for measurement, and white for N-S linears.
ABOVE is the HOLE, and below is the ANGULAR SHIFT away from Vancouver Island, British Columbia to the NW Pacific, which is a LARGER DEEPER hole:
Below is the MOST ACCURATE location of the DIVIDER COORDINATES for the JdF Divider:

Others are shown for various SCALES, e.g. the Chukchi RISE in the Arctic, where the deep Ocean is the "round" hole:
A Hand Sample, which has been squeezed, displays a SLICE, with a Figure 8 showing multiple Shearing "Jerks":
"What are you DESCRIBING?" a Geologist inquired, "we have the most PRODIGIOUS TERMINOLOGY in the scientific world, and only SINKHOLES and TRANSFORM FAULTS are anywhere near what you proclaim!" Exactly, so I created a new description to avoid anything classified by the Geology Culture. SLICES may be found throughout the Crust of the Earth, and one is shown above in a common loose ROCK, to illustrate that Gravitational LATERAL (sideways) Shear influences OUTCROPS found on our daily hikes. A SLICE is a trace along a rock or outcrop, which denotes MOVEMENT  of one side relative to the other- creating SHEAR along the slice, a FAULT in geological terminology.
HOLES include sinkholes, sinks, and circular features commonly seen also. They result from expansion about a slice, as in the following Photo taken in Zion NP, on the Pools Trail:

The SLICE above lies North to South through the center of this erosional feature, and there is information found from its POSITION! As TIME progresses, one side erodes faster than the other; this creates a wider portion on one side. LARGER HOLES have the slice or lateral movement near the edge, as you will see from photos later.
You should ask: "which comes first- the slice or the hole?" Considering that they derive from Earth TIDES, the shear should come first, but there has to be a CONCOMITANT EVENT, probably an ORTHOGONAL SHEAR, to create the hole simultaneously! The Moon and the Sun operate at right angles to each other, as with the Sun along LATITUDE LINES, while the Moon creates traverses along Meridians, N-S, as seen in the Pacific Ocean.

Sand Hollow WASH above has a Hole with a SLICE, shown below:
Below photos are from the Sand Mountain HIKES:

The SLICE is exhibited as a widening TERRACE, and as a Canyon (a "hole") below the Slice cutting the UPLIFT.
Look at this Block of Jurassic Navaho, Jn, sandstone OUTCROP, which is still attached to the bedrock:

Jurassic Navaho sandstone, above, exhibits sides as being ARCUATE, and these consist of many small linears (a SET of many straight lines, altogether appearing as arcs). A circular INDENTATION contains the HOLE, which is aligned with a visible SLICE to the upper right side of the photo. This is a LATERAL movement, with some PENETRATION (creating the hole).

Notice the TERRACE ("TIT"), Hole, Tilted DOME on the left, Level Axial portion on the right, and that the terrace has only a small CONNECTION with the older remnant in this Panorama:

 My assessment of these, since they appear throughout the Rigid Rocks, is that Earth TIDES continually shear and rotate the Crust on many different SCALES. This one would be on the 1/1,000,000 scale (millionth), compared to large features such as the 800 km wide Colorado Plateau (which is also rotating, shearing and creating the "hole" of Zion National Park):

Above is the Virgin River MEANDER, a SLICE of 2 million years in the making, and below is the STRAIGHT line Portion:
Viewing the MEANDER, which Exists at a Critical Location along the SLICE:

The ratio of 1.548 is low, due to the extra distance when surmounting the steep cliffs, and it is more LIKELY a ratio of 1.62 for Venus's Earth days/Venus days per orbit.

Analyzing a METEOR CRATER at Winslow, AZ, the HOLE is accepted by Geologists as made by a STRIKE, with NO evidence such as iron fragments or meteorite remains (some Shock Rock has been found, possibly from a Phreatic vapor blowout). I find that it is a Gravitational "hole" and we will search for a SLICE:
There is a N-S drainage, and below is a larger view to find the SLICE outside of the Hole:
EVALUATION, using angular deviations from the perceived FOCUS:

SEARCHING for sheared pavement, there are exhibited NE-SW FRACTURE PATTERNS, including those outside to the west which, are PERPENDICULAR to the Mogollon Rim orientation. This CLUE suggests that the Rim is extending to the SW, as would be expected for an EXPANDING Colorado Plateau:

I will take DIGITAL PHOTOS when I drive to Winslow, AZ again.

One which is near the Winslow, AZ Crater, and also on the Mogollon Rim, is Lake Stoneman (near hiway I-17, on the east side). This is a COLLAPSE FEATURE, researched by the Flagstaff University, and is surrounded by basalt EXTRUSIVES, which with superficial examination appears to be a Crater (like Meteor Crater, except that this exhibits a large analemma, NOT like the small central one shown on the previous analysis):
The SLICE (divider) is 1904.6 meters, which is Pluto's 17.14104 degrees Inclination x 111.111 km/degree, divided by 1000, or a thousandth of 1904.56 km, or 1904.56 meters. This slice is located by using the darkened traces on both sides, and emphasized by the DIVIDER of the Analemma. The DEEP, or sink, or HOLE, lies to the north, and I have fished and hunted geese in the shallows to the south. Northern Pike feed on Perch in the rushes, where I retrieved the Snow Geese.
Stoneman Lake lies just below Mogollon Rim, and is accessed via a break in the surrounding Basalt:

Stoneman Lake "HOLE" is the light grey circle, and the SLICE cuts through, but closer to the north rim! Ratio of the two parts is 1.476 (1.5, considering errors), which is the difference between Venus and Mars's Inclination Angles, from the Ecliptic Plane (3.398-1.852= 1.546). The REFERENCE Drainage is 2048 meters/10.6 degrees from a N-S line, and this refers to the Asteroid Ceres:
There are at least 4 Solar System MASSES involved: Ceres, Mars, Venus, and Pluto. Probably all Solar Bodies are effecting MOVEMENTS in this "HOLE"! Again, the Fracture indications orient NE-SW, which is perpendicular to the Mogollon Rim:

Most PERTINENT to Geology, and to Hydrocarbon DEPOSITS is the Gulf of Mexico "HOLE" straddling the slice through the Mississippi River Delta, at 90W (more accurately 89.6W):

The RED line is an outline of the ANALEMMA, which is divided by the Green LINE (a DIVIDER of the feature that allows CALCULATION of the RATIO of the 2 cells which make the Partial Figure 8):
NOT very accurate, but I will use it for the CALCULATION: {600 + 527}/527= 2.1385, is the ratio of the TOTAL DIAGONAL LENGTH to the small circle DIAMETER, which is a rough check for the influence of the Sun and Moon! Data so far indicate that 2.16= M/Sun ratio.
Notice that 600/527= 1.1385, compared to (600 + 527)/527= 2.1385, and the DIFFERENCE of 1.0 is regularly found with the Solar System MEASUREMENTS; 14.18 degrees/year for the Sun, as compared to 13.18d/day for the Moon, and Neptune's Inclination of 1.77, and .77 for Uranus; Venus's 3.398 degree Inclination and Mercury/Venus= 2.396.

 Look at the Atlantic Ocean and its Mid Atlantic Ridge, MAR:
Half FIGURE 8, in this photo with North oriented to the LEFT (ORTHOGONAL) above, has the SINK (deepest) in the Northern portion of the MAR, with the RISE in the south near the Equator. It is DIFFICULT to determine the ratio of DIAMETERS, but it can be seen that the RISE (right) is larger than the North Atlantic SINK (left)! It is expected that the ratio is either 1.62, for Venus, or 1.3 for Jupiter:

The RATIO calculated from measurements is 1.18, for the aphelion/perihelion ratio, for Jupiter's ORBIT of 11.8 Earth Years (indicating that Earth and Jupiter are Gravitationally INTERCONNECTED!
What and where is the SLICE?
The slice is E-W, shown in BLUE, and is confirmed by a smaller expanding set of TRANSFORMS (in pink) which encloses the slice, and which exhibits 2 "jerks" of 3000 km each, from ANGLED TERRACES (Continental shelves) off the African Coast- all in Northern Latitudes. This hints that there will be a duplication in the South Atlantic!
South of the Equator:
Above Google Earth photo has TRANSFORMS mostly greater than 200 km N-S, and they are NOT along Latitude lines! MAR is shown in RED, and ANOMALIES occur at both ends of the BLUE LINES. 800 km is the separation commonly found in the Pacific, and this is EQUIVALENT to 7.2 degrees Latitude x 111.111 km/degree (40,000km/360=111.111). 
Look at a LARGER VIEW:
It appears that I was lucky to analyze the Pacific first, since it was scribed MOSTLY by Moon and Sun Tilt and Inclination ANGLES; the Atlantic is complicated by occurrence of the Major Planets- which have introduced many ARCS of Gravitational SHEARING interactions!

A search will be made for the EQUIVALENT Moon's, Venus's, Saturn's, Mars's, Neptune's, and Jupiter's Inclination ANGLES, which are:
5.145 (moon), 3.3978 (Venus), 2.494 (Saturn), 1.8518 (Mars), 1.77 (Neptune), and 1.304 degrees (Jupiter); these multiplied by 111.111 km/degree Latitude are: 571.67 km in a N-S orientation; 377.531 (Venus); 277.138 (Saturn); 205.758 Mars); 196.673 (Neptune); and 144.889 (Jupiter):
Taking Venus first:

The first case is for Venus with its 377 km N-S between MAJOR TRANSFORMS. This is shown above, with a small error. I am selecting transforms which have two of these oriented E-W with a separation N-S for a small interval sufficient for measurement to the North (FEW in the Atlantic):

Above calculations depend upon the Moon to incur a small error! The DIFFERENCE of 8.6% appears to make this ANALYSIS Subjective, and I will select simpler cases:

Above case for Jupitear's influence of  Regional ATTRACTION lies within the SLICE enclosure shown in PINK; lesser Transforms lie within the 144 km separation, and they can be for  Uranus with .77 degrees Inclination (85.88 km). However, since there are 2 of them and the SMALLEST Inclination for Planets is .77 degrees, this requires that ASTEROIDS are involved (which are numerous and whose MASS is generally small, allowing only small depth penetrations in the Crust).
TRANSFORMS at the Equator are oriented E-W, which allows improved ACCURACY:

All this, in conjunction with the findings for the Pacific TRANSFORMS, indicate that the Solar System Bodies (planets, planetoids, asteroids, and comets) adjust to each other, so that their Inclination Angles change as Precession proceeds. Consequently, the angular precession creates a COMCOMITANT change in the others, i.e. the Inclinations "add up" to 
offset changes.
Examples for the Sun TILT of 7.2 degrees, Mercury Inclination Angle at 7.0056, Moon at 5.145, Venus at 3.398, Saturn at 2.49424, Mars, at 1.851819, Neptune at 1.77006, Jupiter at 1.304, and Uranus at .77006 degrees yield:
Me 7.0056- Moon 5.145- Mars 1.851819= .0088, which is the smallest deviation (.17%)!
Added perspective is found with the Sun, where the Sun TILT has been investigated for PRECESSION (with an 80+ m.y. Total CYCLE). Since I have found that this ADDITIVE DEVIATION magnitude is too large, it may indicate why the following addition of Inclination angles is somewhat larger in ERROR:
Sun - Moon- Jupiter- Uranus yields .022 degrees, and should the PRESENT Segment be corrected to 7.178 (from 7.2 degrees, between Transforms in the Pacific), the result would be EQUILIBRIUM!
Similarly, if the following Sun+ Venus- Ceres (asteroid) at:
7.2+ 3.39778- 10.58= .017 (.5%), is corrected for the Sun's precession to 7.183, there would be equilibrium. Perceiving that there is presently near-equilibrium in the Solar System, the 7.2 degree Solar segment may exist at 7.178 to 7.183 degrees, or an AVERAGE of about 7.18 degrees (which is near that finally deduced in a previous Blog report).

The EQUATOR exhibits Transforms E-W, Parallel to others, with Jupiter as the most PROMINENT!
ENLARGING, at the Equator, 31W:

I will post 2 Lakes in Utah and Nevada, the Great Salt Lake and Pyramid, both of which I have ANALYZED and visited previously. These introduce new observations, since I observed them on my old computer, with Google Earth:
NOT seen by field workers is the faint CIRCULAR TRACE surrounding the Lake, terminating west of the Wasatch Range (mountains shown as 2 traces, displaced 5 degrees from each other. The Moon can be expected to exert 5.145 degrees of shift from the N-S Meridian, and this rough plot yields 5 degrees between SLICES, or linears (which could be improved with careful measurement- using amplification to find exact positions of FEATURES at termination points). Below is an enlarged VIEW:

REFERENCED to Mendocino 40.439N Latitude, and Prime Natural Meridian, 169.6W Longitude:

COMPARE with Pyramid Lake, to determine whether N-S oriented Lakes are shifted by the Moon's 5.145 degree Inclination from the Ecliptic Plane:

Pyramid Lake performs similarly to Great Salt Lake, in that the OLDEST (widest) part exhibits a Meridianal Slice on the east side, while the younger part to the south is ARCUATE. These are separated from the initiation by Linear's SHIFT of about 5 degrees (again, the Moon's Inclination Angle is 5.145 degrees from the Ecliptic Plane)! My CONCLUSION is that the Moon effects N-S LINEARS, but subsequently larger shifts greater than 16 degrees allow lesser Mass/separations squared to create ARCS. This justifies my OBSERVATION that an EQUATION of the type:
{72- (Latitude+1)}/(Latitude + 1)= must be used for DIAGONAL FEATURES, for other than Longitude. The Longitude EQUATION remains:
{180- (longitude + 1)}/[longitude + 1]= a RATIO, or dimension-less number, which can be related to Astrono-metrical Inclination degrees or ratios of 2 planets' Inclinations.

Pyramid Lake lies at CRITICAL COORDINATES; 40N 119.6W, 50E of Prime (mistake is shown on the photo)!

Another CASE, for Malheur Lake in Oregon, in the Desert of the Basin and Range Province:

The evaporitic lake is 831 k.y. and YOUNGER than deeper Malheur.This case exhibits the DIVIDER (slice) east of the "HOLE", with NO significant scarp! An analemma is visible, with the larger partial 8 to the east. The TIDAL MOVEMENT is 37.6 mm/year to the west:

Above analysis shows that the "TIT from the south is at the PERIPHERY of a CCW Rotation, with its abnormally-large RATE! Lake Malheur is a CASE where the SLICE lies east of the YOUNGER Hole, and where a "TIT"  between 2 waterways is the separator of the Figure 8, with the Larger cell to the East. The ANALEMMA lies on the western edge of the Basin and Range, and shows that the BR Region is EXPANDING to the west!

Above calculations yield 1.279 m,y. (which is more likely 1.25 m.y. by the Binary Sequence), and the 831 k.y. Evaporitic Basin, in white to the West, is 448 k.y. younger. There would have been a drainage from east to west, but the Rising Tit between them has blocked it- forming the evaporites in the last 625 k.y., using the half ratio. These numbers and ratios have unknown accuracy, but are simple to remember with the Binary Sequence of 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. Accuracy may be estimated by measuring the separation of the 2 Foci (between the evaporitic and the  Deep Malheur Lakes. Rates of movement vary from2 to 100 mm/year, acording to the proximity to the Periphery of the Rotation (maximum) or near the Focus (minimum Rates).

To be CONTINUED. Other cases are shown at:

Next TOPIC of Ajana Caves, India, Deccan Traps is introduced below:

20.5525N 75.700556E



Barely discernible at 24 m.y. are the River TRACES' ARCS:
The DeccanTraps occurred at 42.84 m.y. as COMPARED to 64 m.y. for Chicxulub, and this can be checked with the OUTCROPS of Flood Basalts in India Geology. ERRORS may be appraised by using the 17.48 mm/year divisor, as it is adjusted for UPLIFT. Should there be little RISE in the E-W traverse, the accuracy is improved! 64 m.y. requires that the Diameter DIVISOR be 11.7 km/m.y. (748.8km/64 m.y.= 11.7 mm/yr., which is near the Sun TIDAL Rate)
