Vertical displacement leading to apparent lateral displacement can be rejected because it leads to absurd ( 1 9 9) T h e heights of guyots above demands upon the dip of layers of r o c k . the ocean floor, the heights of the bases of the coral cappings of atolls, and the attitude of the tops of guyots near trenches led Menard to erect the Darwin Rise and deduce its age relationship with at least one trench. The slope of the ocean floor south of the Aleutian trench led Shor to conclude that the development of the Aleutian arc prevented sediment ( 2 5 1) transport south, and led to in-filling of the Bering S e a .

If the gravitational effect of the infinite sheet of rock, of thickness equal to the height of the observation above sea-level, is subtracted from the free-air anomaly a simple Bouguer anomaly results. Topographic corrections might also be subtracted if the variations in topography from a plane surface are to be taken into account. T h e effect of known variations in subsurface density might also be considered, in which case a modified Bouguer anomaly is calculated. A third type of anomaly can also be calculated —the isostatic anomaly.

The organisms must also be sensitive to changes in the properties of the water masses, to the temperature of the water at the surface, for example, and the relationship between the changes that are found in the organisms and the properties of the water must be known. The problem can be attacked in a number of ways. Laboratory studies of the influence of properties such as salinity, temperature, hydrostatic Fig. 2.
