Your educated answer may include such terms as subduction, subsidence, and isostasy
His formulation of the isostatic scheme for the gravity gradient field was based on solving the VMM problem of isostasy

Second, Mallorca appears to be particularly well suited to the task, because neither tectonics nor isostasy
- geological forces of crustal motion - over-complicate the record.
Consider a post-glacial rebound model, based on the isostasy
concept, namely, that the elevation of earth's surface (over tens of millions of years) seeks a balance between the weight of lithospheric rocks and the buoyancy of the more viscous asthenosphere.

Should they hazard an enquiry as to the meaning of such an utterance,I would inform them with smug superiority that isostasy
is in fact a term describing the state of equilibrium when the earth's crust rests on the molten mantle below; and they in turn would probably regret asking.
