Page several: What are earthquakes?
Within this case study, I am investigating a question: are earthquakes are becoming even more frequent? During this investigation, I will be explaining how earthquakes are diagnosed, how they happen to be caused, offering an argument for and from this debate and so forth At the end of my case study, I will produce an opinion based on the evidence that I have gathered. I will become questioning the reliability of my sources of information. If you wish to analyse the resources yourself, site to the websites will be available around the bibliography page. I will likewise acquire statistics to further support the argument being made by both sides. Diagrams will give visual aid to aid understand this questionable issue.

What are earthquakes?
Firstly, Earthquakes are usually triggered when mountain underground suddenly breaks along a problem. This sudden release of one's causes the seismic dunes that make the floor shake. When ever two blocks of ordinary or two dishes are chaffing against the other person, they stay a little. That they don't simply slide easily; the rubble catch to each other. The rocks remain pushing against each other, but not moving. After a while, the rocks break because of all of the pressure that is built up. If the rocks break, the earthquake occurs. Through the earthquake and afterward, the plates or perhaps blocks of rock commence moving, and so they continue to approach until they will get stuck again. The spot underground where rock fails is called the focus of the earthquake. The place right above the target (on top of the ground) is referred to as the epicenter of the earthquake. (picture displaying epicentre of earthquake) Earthquakes can cause a lot of damage. Earthquakes have the power to uproot woods and send out them ramming into properties. They can result in landslides and...
