Article Preview

In this paper, gravity anomaly in northeastern margin of Tibetan Plateau (90ºand 110º E, 28ºand 42º N) is computed using satellite gravity gradiometry data from GOCE satellite. The computed gravity anomaly is compared with the topographical data and location of some strong earthquakes in this region. The result shows that gravity anomaly has good conformity with the regional tectonic distribution and strong earthquake usually occurred in the steep gravity gradient zone.
