...arthquakes can modify the Earth's gravity field by deforming
the Earth's layers and by changing the density of rocks through dilation and compression of crust and mantle material. Such changes were detected after the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satelli...
