Measuring Earthquakes | Measuring Earthquake

Measuring Earthquakes The power (magnitude) of an earthquake is measured on the Richter scale, using an instrument called a seismometer.The Richter scale is numbered 0-10 with 10 being the most powerful. The Richter scale is logarithmic – an earthquake measuring 7 is 10 times more powerful than one measuring 6 and 100 times more powerful… Read More »

Earthquake Effects on Tall Buildings

Earthquake Effects On Tall Buildings Types of Earthquake Faults Only convergent and transform boundaries tend to cause large earthquakes. Divergent boundaries do cause earthquakes as well, but these tend cause much less  damage. Convergent boundaries are mostly found just offshore of many continents, where an oceanic plate subducts beneath a continental plate Most of the… Read More »
