Among natural calamities, earthquakes are known for causing more damage to both the human race and infrastructure. Most earthquakes on earth result from the movement of tectonic plates below a few miles caused by the sudden release of energy in the earth’s lithosphere. It creates seismic waves that cause most of the damage.

To know the science behind this, you must know about the different layers beneath the earth’s surface. Crust, lithosphere, asthenosphere, core-mantle boundary, solid iron inner core, mantle, and liquid iron inner core are all layers of what earth is made of.

Volcanic activity, folding and faulting, tectonic plates movement, nuclear bombs, construction activities, underground mining, Dams & reservoirs, landslides, injecting liquid waste into the ground, and the creation of high-rise buildings are some significant reasons for earthquakes.

Shaking and ground raptures, landslides and avalanches, fires, soil liquefaction, tsunami, and floods are some results of all the reasons explained above. You can go through the infographic below to know more about earthquakes and their causes.
