Modern seismology has two main parts: foci seismology and structure seismology. The first part is connected with the study of earthquakes as physical phenomena and their consequences: seismicity and seismic risk. The second is connected with the Earth’s structure study using the seismic waves generated by earthquakes and artificial sources.
