Definición de Vening Meinesz, Felix Andries en inglés:

( 1887–1966), Dutch geophysicist. He devised a technique for making accurate gravity measurements with the aid of a pendulum and pioneered the use of submarines for marine gravity surveys. He located negative gravity anomalies in the deep trenches near island arcs in the Pacific, correctly interpreting them as being due to the downward buckling of the oceanic crust.
