But why, I wonder, is it a "hump"? If the local gravitational constant
there is greater, why isn't there a "depression"?
Because the extra gravity there attracts more than its normal share of the
available fluid water.
Ah, but why is this so?? Another hand-waving argument might be that there
is a grreater gravitational force "down" therefore there will be a depresion
there. An appeal to potentials just adds another layer to the question.
If ocean water runs "up hill", why don't rivers?
