Abstract : On the grounds of the adduced facts, it is believed that a direct dependency between the Bouguer anomalies and the crust's thickness, obtained by averaging in one or another manner the thickness values and the appropriate values of anomalies, is physically unsubstantiated, and does not comply with the actual situation. Therefore, the interpretation results of gravity field, based on this dependency, and especially the generalizing conclusions from these results, cannot be accepted even in a capacity of a first approximation. All this refers to the continental regions. For the territory of the world oceans, where the single-layer structure of the earth's crust is known beforehand, the direct dependency between the values of Bouguer anomalies and the depth of Mohorovicic discontinuity has a real meaning, if the reduction for the deficiency of the masses of sea water is made correctly.
