Welcome to WikiProject Earthquakes, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving the coverage of earthquake-related articles. This WikiProject aims to enhance information on earthquakes, aftershocks, seismology, seismologists, tectonic plates, and related articles. For more information on WikiProjects in general, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects.

Scope

All articles about earthquakes, aftershocks, seismology, seismologists, plate tectonics, and related articles. Earthquake impact on structures is covered in earthquake engineering. Please feel free to join the project and expand its scope in any necessary directions.

RyRy (talk · contribs) Mostly baseball. But for earthquake related things, mostly earthquakes that have a lot of history to them. I mostly would like to create new earthquake related articles, and then nominate them for WP:DYK at Template talk:DYK. If you need any earthquake that you think has a lot of history to it, ask me to create it. Or of you want me to review an article for DYK, you may ask me also.
Haha169 (talk · contribs) 2008 Sichuan earthquake and working on writing/saving 2008 Chino Hills earthquake. Although I'm not a contributor to any other quake articles, feel free to ask me to leave a peer review or other "PR" type things, and I'll be happy to do so. Nominated 2008 Sichuan earthquake at WP:GAN, successfully promoted and became the fourth Earthquake GA.
