They can pick up the tiniest earth movements. Who studies earthquakes? Scientists called seismologists. They work in more than 4,000 stations around the world. 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.
The earthquake destroyed the town of Kodiak. People felt its tremors as far away as California, Hawaii, and Japan. Which was the worst year on record for earthquakes? 1976. Major tremors in Guatemala, Italy, Russia, Indonesia, China, the Philippines, and Turkey killed about one million people. The earthquakes destroyed the homes of many millions more.
