Bolivia Salt Flat is not Flat

The Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat, or playa, at over 10,000 square kilometres in area.
It's in the Daniel Campos Province in Potosí in southwest Bolivia, near the crest of the Andes at an
elevation of 3,656 metres above sea level, and appears to be flat as far as the eye can see.

Using UNAVCO GPS reference stations Walter Bislin has proved that this salt flat curves exactly as
predicted by the WGS84 Globe Model.

You can check out Bislin's site here: Bolivia Salt Flat is not Flat.

The flat is around 125km E-W and around 115km N-S.

I think the accuracy and evidence of this 21st century scientific experiment far exceeds the accuracy and
reliability of Rowbotham's 1838 Bedford Level experiments. Atmospheric refraction can produce the results
observed by Rowbotham, as light rays travelling nearly horizontally close to the Earth's surface bend
downwards, so that the line of sight is a curve.  This downward curve could match the mean curvature
of the Earth's surface. The combined effects of assumed curvature, and refraction, could cancel each other
out, such that the Earth would appear flat in simple optical observations such as Rowbotham's.

Familiarise yourself with the basics, and abandon your obsession with Rowbotham. We don't share it, and you will not spam this forum about it.
