9 Although we usually measure height on land against sea-level, the sea is not in fact strictly flat, but has its own topography that is generally measured in terms of the difference in height and the isobaric surface at a specific reference pressure.
The effect is due to the deformation of Acadian isothermal and isobaric surfaces by the antiform al cross-fold, and does not represent a true syn-metamorphic inversion.
