Abstract : A comparison was made of the gravimetric observations on the Black Sea which were carried out by L. V. Sorokin (1930-1935) and the Institute of Geophysics of the USSR Academy of Sciences (1960). As a result of this comparison it was noted that Sorokin's measurements do not have noticeable systematic errors and are characterized by a random error of plus or minus 10 - 12 mgals. The performed analysis has confirmed the reliability of the general character of the gravity field in the water area of the Black Sea obtained by L. V. Sorokin. (Author)
