The stations are connected through computer and satellite linkups. Working together, seismologists in several stations use information from seismographs to locate an earthquake’s epicenter. Seismologists use a number of scales to measure the power of an earthquake. Best known is the Richter scale, named after seismologist Charles F. Richter, who invented the scale in 1935.
