Scientists Measure Gravity Change From Earthquake 99

Posted by ScuttleMonkey
from the seismic-remodeling dept.
Science Daily is reporting that scientists were able to use satellite data to watch changes in the Earth's surface caused by a massive earthquake. These changes had two major measurable effects on the region. The massive uplift in the seafloor changed GPS measurements, and the density of the rock beneath the seafloor changed which produced a detectable change in gravity.
