Smaller earthquakes following the largest one (the main shock).
Increase in the amplitude of earthquake wave depending on the nature of ground.
The maximum height of a wave crest or depth of a trough.
Decrease in the amplitude of earthquake waves.
The vibration of the Earth caused by the passage of seismic waves.
The point on ground surface directly above the focus (hypocenter) of an earthquake.

Number of vibrations per unit time.
- Fundamental period
It is the period of an oscillating structure when subjected to shaking.
- Ground motion
Movements of ground caused by the vibrations of earthquake.
A measure of ground shaking obtained from damage to man-made structures (Modified Mercalli scale).
