The Reading on Earthquakes elaborates on the concepts presented in the Activities section of Project Earth Science: Geology, Revised 2nd Edition. This Reading was written especially for this volume with the teacher in mind.

Most earthquakes occur when interactions between moving lithospheric plates deform rock, causing it to break or suddenly change position. About 95% of earthquakes occur at and near plate boundaries, but earthquakes can happen anywhere. Earthquakes can be hazardous, but structures can be made resistant to earthquake damage.
