Benefits to the study of oceanic tectonics expected from Seasat-AA more detailed gravity field such as provided by the SEASAT-A altimeter would help resolve several problems of marine geology, such as the relationship of spreading rises to convective upstreams and the tectonics of subduction zones and the associated marginal basins. In addition, the gravity field should be measured in more detail over continental shelves accessible to mineral exploration. A secondary contribution of SEASAT-A would be to sedimentation processes, through its influence on models of ocean currents.
