Kinds of earthquake

We have many kinds of earthquake such as earthquake caused by tectonic, volcanic and explosion.

The kind of earthquake depends on the geological area where it happens.

Among them, tectonic earthquakes is most common one. This happens while earth's crust rocks break because of the geological strength created by moving of the earth's plates. Volcanic earthquakes happen exactly with volcanic activity.

Explosion earthquakes are the result of the collapse earthquakes that are small earthquakes occurring in underground mines and caverns. We will measure movement from large tectonic earthquakes by using GPS and due to rocks on either side of a fault are offset during this kind of earthquake .
