Abstract : The paper deals with the problems of the accepted interpretation of the Bouguer reduction for the sea. The only thing which to some extent could justify the introduction of the Bouguer reduction at sea is a certain smoothing out of the effect exerted by the relief forms of the oceanic bottom in each local area. But the smoothing is made in an unfavorable manner, because then a large artificial regional background is created. The introduction of the Bouguer reduction at sea is associated with the problem of specific processing of the material for its various types of interpretation. Bouguer anomalies for oceanic regions, formed by 'filling up' the ocean to the rocks of medium density, without taking into account the correction for the relief of the oceanic bottom, can be distorted by tens of milligals.
