Map Projections to Represent Possible Effects of Surface Loading

2001 Journal of the Geodetic Society of Japan  
Time-varying surface loads affect many geodetic quantities. To help in understanding this process, I describe map projections which show an area of the Earth's surface in proportion to the influence a load at that location would have on a measurement at a given place. Such maps illustrate the great importance of nearby regions compared with those more distant, and should be helpful in evaluating possible errors in the computation of loading effects.
