Seismograph: The instrument

(Apparatus to measure and record vibrations)

Seismogram: The actual wiggle

(Record of an Earth tremor recorded by a seismograph)


Earthquake Magnitude


Earthquake Fault Rupture Area

Magnitude -2

Magnitude 2

Magnitude ~8

(~300 miles)


Maximum Amplitude of Ground Shaking Determines Richter Magnitude
