At depths shallower than 4000 m, the difference is within 2%. For most applications, this error is sufficiently small that it can be neglected and hydrostatic pressure values can be converted directly into geometric depth. 025 x 103 kg/m 3 is the mean water density. Units o f p are [kg/m3][m/s2][m] = [kg/m][1/s2].
