topographic correction (terrain correction) A correction applied to observed geophysical values to remove the effects of topography. In gravity studies, it is the correction applied to each individual determination of gravity to allow for the attraction of rocks occurring as hills above the height of the recording station and as valleys below this level. For seismic corrections see ELEVATION CORRECTION; and STATIC CORRECTION.
