Abstract : Theoretical estimates of some factors which affect the topography of the sea surface are given for the Caribbean Sea. Weather and oceanographic effects which act on the ocean surface eventually to be mapped by an orbiting GEOS-C satellite are discussed in terms of their relative magnitudes and general distribution over the area of interest.
