Earthquakes causing 1,000,000,000 billion kg of ocean water to reach Earth's core

Researchers at Washington University used seismic sensors around the Marianas Trench to listen to echoes of earthquakes in the planet's crust and found that about 3 billion teragrams of water is being pulled into the crust every million years and 1,000,000,000 billion kg Of ocean water is being sucked into the Earth's core each year due to earthquakes.
