The propagation of spherical shock waves, produced by explosion of a spherical charge in deep sea, have been studied using the, energy hypothesis of T.Y. Thomas. The energy release from the chargeis supposed to be time dependent and the effects of earth's gravitation is taken into account. It is found that the shock compression varies very slowly with variation in the direction of shock propagation. The effects of earth's gravitation is to decrease the shock compression and its decay with shock
