An earthquake (or quakes, tremors) is the shaking of the surface of the earth, caused by the sudden movement in the Tectonic Plates. They can be extremely violent or cannot be felt by anyone.

Earthquakes are usually quite brief, but may repeat. They are the result of a sudden release of energy in the Tectonic Plates. This creates seismic waves, which are waves of energy that travel through the Earth. The study of earthquakes is called seismology.[1]Seismology studies the frequency, type and size of earthquakes over a period of time.

There are large earthquakes and smallearthquakes. Large earthquakes can take down buildings and cause death and injury. Earthquakes are measured using observations from seismometers. The magnitude of an earthquake, and the intensity of shaking, is usually reported on the Richter scale.The Richter Scale was invented by Charles Francis Richter in 1935. On the scale, 3 or less is scarcely noticeable, and magnitude 5 (or more) causes damage over a wide area.

An earthquake under the ocean can cause a tsunami. This can cause just as much death and destruction as the earthquake itself. Landslides can happen, too. Earthquakes are part of the Earth's rock cycle. The impact can be measured by a seismometer. It detects the vibrations caused by an earthquake. It puts these movement on a seismograph. The strength, or magnitude, of an earthquake is measured using the Richter scale. The Richter scale is numbered 0-9.
