Planet Earth is a living organism, a powerful engine that is at the same time a fragile entity which continuously evolves, metamorphoses, and adjusts its nominal responsibility to itself and its inhabitants, thus affecting own interior and exterior functions.
Simultaneously as the planet’s external surface experiences changes from atmospheric activity, so do the underlying components and the core, which are in turn manifested on the surface.
Over the past century, through innovative research and technological advancements, we are able to gain an invaluable insight into the workings of our planet and monitor its development.
Exchange of energy deep in Earth’s central regions is constant and reciprocal, which resonates in the vibrations that transmit in the form of forceful seismic waves.
Of utmost importance to geologists, geographers and environmentalists is to comprehend the causes and effects of seismic activity on the environment, and vice versa. They are trying to chart courses of action that will minimize response time after natural disasters by earthquakes and associated with them: tidal waves, volcanic eruptions, landslides, land sinking, flooding, etc.
The physical, biological, chemical components of our environment are changing in accordance with similar constituent forces of the universe.
