Correction

August 13, 1992

An article in The Sun Monday on the Topex/Poseidon satellite gave an inaccurate description of the shape of the ocean's surface. In the absence of currents, the surface tends to follow ocean-bottom contours, bulging over submerged mountains and dipping over broad sea floors.

The Sun regrets the error.
