Abstract : In geophysical literature, many works are dedicated to the calculation of the influence of the terrain relief upon the data of gravimetric measurements. At present, generally accepted methods of calculation consist of the computation and introduction of the so called correction for the terrain relief. This is an addition to the correction for the intermediate layer. Such problems as the connection between the topographic corrections and the reduction, the selection of an appropriate density value and methods for the introduction of the correction to gravimetric observations, require further studies. The connection of the topographic correction with the correction for the intermediate layer, as well as the selection of the density value for the computation of the correction for the relief, depending on the density value of the intermediate layer, are examined in this article.
