These changes arise from two causes - the one statical, the other dynamical.
The statical causes are deposits of snow or ice slowly changing the position of the pole of figure of the earth.
His services were as conspicuous in the statical as in the kinetical division of mechanics.
The statical experiments of C. H.
Since the only cause for these convection currents is the statical instability produced by radiation, and the rapid stifling of radiations within the body produces there a temperature gradient falling very slowly, they would be for the most part extremely slight.
