We study elevations of the level of a homogeneous ocean caused by a large-scale elliptic anomaly of the field of atmospheric pressure and determine the conditions under which Earth's rotation and the asymmetry of the region of disturbances of the baric field lead to significant deviations of the ocean level from its values given by the law of inverted barometer. Our investigation is based on the numerical analysis of the integral solution of the linear problem. It is shown that the deviations from the law of inverted barometer are especially pronounced in shallow-water regions, at high latitudes, and for strongly asymmetric regions of disturbances of atmospheric pressure.
