    An earthquake with magnitude of –3 is 1, times smaller than magnitude 0, the smallest number on the original Richter scale. Seismic Moment. Seismologists often prefer to describe the size of an earthquake in terms of the physical conditions at the earthquake source itself rather than in terms of the shaking it produces.

A good prediction must be accurate as to where an earthquake will occur, when it will occur, and at what magnitude it will be so that people can evacuate.

An unnecessary evacuation is expensive and causes people not to believe authorities the next time an evacuation is ordered. Where an earthquake will occur is the easiest feature to predict.

Book: Fundamentals of Geology (Schulte) 8: Earthquakes Expand/collapse global location takes place before an earthquake.

But, so far, none of these types of data have been found to lead to reliable earthquake predictions. People have also looked into correlations between earthquakes and phases of the Moon, earthquakes and the time of day. The Haicheng earthquake was the largest earthquake in an earthquake swarm, whereas the Tangshan earthquake in the following year was a mainshock followed by aftershocks.

No major earthquake in recent history in the United States or Japan is known to have been preceded by enough foreshocks to lead to a short-term prediction useful to society. adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86A.
