Abstract

Dynamic sections could be made absolute if, between each pair of oceanographic stations, the inclination of any isobaric surface were known with reference to any coextensive geopotential surface. Various methods for accomplishing this measurement are cited with particular emphasis on gravimetric and inertio-optical techniques. An observational procedure is outlined in principle, and the difficulties of such measurements are discussed in the light of recent experiments at sea.
