An earthquake is the shaking of Earth’s surface. Earthquakes can range from minuscule tremors to violent quakes that have the ability to destroy entire cities. In nature, earthquakes are caused by faulting, volcanic activity,and landslides, but they can also result from human activities such as nuclear testing or mine blasting. The CGS has 14 publications on earthquakes including reports and maps.
