EARTHQUAKE - also known as a quake, tremor or temblor, is the result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. The seismicity, seismism or seismic activity of an area refers to the frequency, type and size of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. Earthquakes are measured using observations from seismometers, national seismological observatories are measured mostly on the local magnitude scale, also referred to as the Richter scale.
