Earthquakes and the Earth's Interior. Earthquakes. Earthquakes occur when energy stored in elastically strained rocks is suddenly released.

This release of energy causes intense ground shaking in the area near the source of the earthquake and sends waves of elastic energy, called seismic waves, throughout the Earth. is the result of a. Seismic stations located at increasing distances from the earthquake epicenter will record seismic waves that have traveled through increasing depths in the Earth.

Seismic velocities depend on the material properties such as composition, mineral phase and packing structure, temperature, and pressure of the media through which seismic waves pass.

An earthquake is a rupture process occurring in Earth's interior under tectonic stresses caused primarily by plate motion. During an earthquake, the stress on a fault changes in a complex fashion, and the potential energy (strain energy and gravitational energy) stored in Earth is released as seismic waves.

The ratio of the released seismic wave energy to the potential energy is the seismic. An Introduction to Seismology, Earthquakes and Earth Structures is an introduction to seismology and its role in the earth sciences, and is written for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students.

The fundamentals of seismic wave propagation are developed using a physical approach and then applied to show how refraction, reflection, and teleseismic techniques are used to study the 4/5(1). Earthquake Thermodynamics and Phase Transformation in the Earth's Interior.

From its repetition in the contents list, it is evident that the crucial word is ‘convection’. Deep convection was contemplated in the late s as a way to avoid the age-of-the-Earth paradox that arose from Kelvin’s calculation of a diffusively cooling Earth.
