    Heat transfer is due to temperature difference,but does it have anything to do with gravity?

    I can't see any direct connection with gravity. Apart from the fact that the pressure of the atmosphere (and the oceans) changes depending on altitude (or depth) which probably affects the conductivity.

    Convection would most certainly be influenced by gravity. Is that what you were thinking of?

    Good point. Convection is not just influenced by, but requires gravity!
