Abstract : Four different values of ocean depth, five seamount peak submergence depths, and various typical seamount slope angles were assumed to study the relationship between seamount slope and maximum vertical deflection (signature slope). Also, the width of the seamount at the base was compared to the signature width. The results suggest that seamount width may be inferred from the geoid height feature associated with the seamount more accurately than seamount slope. (Author)
