Welcome to the AGU Seismology Section!

Seismologists use seismic waves to study how earthquake faults rupture and to probe Earth's internal structure from the surface to the core.  Seismology plays a key role in mitigating earthquake hazards, finding oil and other Earth resources, monitoring nuclear explosions, and understanding the internal dynamics of our planet.
