Main Question or Discussion Point

Here is a esoteric problem that is totally unique in nature: Taylor Glacier, in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica, hosts site of a Fe2+ brine solution, expressed as a rusty discharge at the terminus. There is strong diurnal signals in seismic data gathered from an array co-located there, not attributable to cultural, or other geophysical inputs.

Challenge: with a median value of magnetic susceptibility for concentrated Fe brine, and assuming volumes on the order of cubic meters (not cubic km, for example), what is the maximum force or stress that a confined solution (subglacially) can exert on it's walls, driven by Earth Tides alone?

It's outside my expertise (mechanics, math mostly) but someone might have a Fermi-type solution.
