Abstract. Satellite gravity data is used for the analysis of seismically active zones. As a result of processing gravimetric data from the GOSE and GRACE satellites, a global gravimetric map of the vertical gravity gradient and a gravimetric map for the Northern Tien Shan region were obtained. It is established that the epicenters of the foci of large earthquakes correlate with the location of zones of sharp changes in the vertical gravity gradient. Scope of application: geodynamics, seismology, geophysics.
Keywords: satellite gravity data, Earth’s crust, earthquake focal zones, gravity gradients.
