A seaquake can be defined as "an earthquake originating under the sea floor".--Wanblee 22:11, 16 February 2006 (UTC)

I think this page could use a little reformating and a lot of additional information. I'd like to add some information on the types of waves, the basic science behind it, a little more history, and information about modern studies in seismology. I'd also like to add a content section to help keep it organised. It'll probably be a slow process, though. Does anyone have any problems with the changes I'm proposing or does anyone have any other suggestions? --Beabria, September 21, 2006

"Logos"[edit]

Perhaps a better interpretation of the greek "logos", would be "study of" rather than word, which doesn't really make sense in this context. An example of this si the world Biology, defined as study of life.

Reply by Zeus: ive edited it to knowledge, as ive seen on other fields of science. =)

Some links that may be useful as sources of earthquake information[edit]

Oil industry[edit]

"Seismic" redirects here, and is the term used for technology used in the oil and gas industry to help find oil. Could some mention be made here? TastyCakes (talk) 19:51, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Good idea. I suggest that someone add the following to the very beginning of the article, before the first sentence:
{{Redirect|Seismic|seismic methods in exploration geophysics|Reflection seismology}}
which displays as

CfD merger note[edit]

Pretty figure, but ...[edit]

... what does it show? What kind of wave is it? What do the colors signify? What is the significance of its interaction with the buried land mine? RockMagnetist (talk) 22:27, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
