Ocean Island Densities and Models of Lithospheric Flexure

Estimates of the effective elastic thickness (Te) of the oceanic lithosphere based on gravity and bathymetric data from island loads are commonly significantly lower than those based on the wavelength of plate bending at subduction zones. The anomalously low values for ocean islands have been attrib...
