Does time dilation cause redshift?

  1. Jun 9, 2009 #1
    This may be an easy answer for AtsroPhys vetrans. But I'm assuming since the doppler effect of an accelerating galaxy causes reshift, then the time dilation from a gravitational field would do the same. This is referring to very powerful fields, and also to redshift in all waves (not just visible light).

    Thanks.. For some reason I couldn't find it when I searched.
