In modern geophysics, hydrostatic dependence of pressure on the depth in the lithosphere is postulated. It is considered evident and requiring no proof. As shown in the present work, the above postulate is erroneous. Proceeding from one of the fundamental laws of physics related to the minimum of potential energy in the equilibrium state, one can derive a nonhydrostatic solution of the elasticity equation with minimum elastic energy referred to as a Gravitational Equilibrium Field with andoi:10.4236/ijg.2014.54044 fatcat:7vflful7urgqdevg55gn2m5jje
