Abstract : In the development of methods for computation of the correction for the sea-bottom topography, great difficulties associated with the characteristics of the type of gravimetric survey, and with the extent of information of topography are encountered. This paper discusses a priori information, i.e., that which was obtained from surveys carried out earlier, and the data which are obtained from direct echo sounding of the ocean floor in the process of profile traversing. A priori information could be a solution to the correction problem. (Author)
