The Science of Earthquakes

Each year our planet experience several million earthquakes around the world, according to US Geological Survey (USGS). Most of it are very minimal seismic activity, some major magnitude strong enough to knock down bridges and buildings. An earthquake is not simply the shaking of the Earth’s surface. There’s more things happening beneath the surface and many factors involved before it occur. Understand the science behind this natural force—from studying the anatomy of an earthquake and calculating the Richter Scale to learning the types of faults and seismic waves.

    I think there are some places on Earth that never have earthquakes like those not near a the boundary of tectonic plate.

    It is unfortunate to see that even with all the technology we have today, we’re still far away from predicting earthquakes.
