The numerical equivalent source is used to correct distortions in gravity anomalies caused by topographic relief. The error involved in the topographic correction is a function of the depth of the equivalent source. The optimum depth of the equivalent source is that which maximizes the smoothness of the calculated anomaly between control points. The technique is straightforward and can be incorporated easily into a standard data processing sequence.
