Canyoutellhowone
Works?

Earthquakes generate seismic waves


which can be detected with a
sensitive
instrument called a seismograph.
Advances in seismograph
technology have increased
our understanding of both
earthquakes and the Earth itself.
Perhaps the earliest seismograph
was invented in China A.D. 136 by
a m an named Choko.
