EARTHQUAKE BY ENERGY RELEASE OVERVIEW
Richter scale is an open-ended scale that gives an idea of the amount of energy released during an earthquake and based on the amplitudes (half the height from wave-base to wave-crest) of seismic waves at a distance of 61 miles (100 km) from the epicentre.
Earthquake is a sudden release of energy from slip on a fault, an explosion, or other events that causes the ground to vibrate, shake or and crack, associated with the passage of waves of energy released at its source.
