In Earthquakes, Seismology, and Some Surprises we will start by looking at some of the most famous, and infamous, earthquakes of the 21st century. Then we will explore the geological structure of the Earth that causes earthquakes and why quakes are concentrated in certain parts of the globe. We will take a more careful look at the San Andreas Fault in California and at quakes in the Western New York area.
