A gravimetric field was an energy field that exerted a gravitational-like force on nearby objects.
In 2293, while attempting to rescue the SS Lakul and SS Robert Fox from the Nexus energy ribbon, the USS Enterprise-B became caught in a gravimetric field emanating from the ribbon's trailing edge. The field was of such size that it proved difficult to disrupt. Montgomery Scott theorized that an antimatter explosion directly ahead of the starship could be enough to break it free. Since the Enterprise was not carrying photon torpedoes, a resonance burst from its deflector dish was used to simulate such a blast, allowing the ship to escape. (Star Trek Generations)
The Hirogen communications network was surrounded by gravimetric fields that were spawned from the station's quantum singularity power source. The gravimetric forces from these fields could effect starships as far as two light years away. (VOY: "Hunters")
