 An earthquake is a sudden movement of the earth's surface.
Earthquakes are caused by the movement of the earth's tectonicplates.
Earthquakes occur where the earth's plates meet along plateboundaries. For example as two plates move towards each other,one can be pushed down under the other one into the mantle.
If this plate gets stuck it causes a lot of pressure on surroundingrocks. When this pressure is released it produces shock waves.
These are called seismic waves. This is an earthquake..
×A seismoscope is an instrument used to measure vibrations othe earth's crust. Generally, scientists use these readings topredict when an earthquake will strike.
