Earth Science Chapter 8– Song Lyrics

 

Seismology Matters

 

[Yo… you know the song]

Seismology is the study of earthquakes

The tremor or the temblor or the shock when the earth shakes

Rupture, rebound, snap back into place

Respect for the changes Mother Earth makes

 

Seismology is the science of studying earthquakes [Sing the tune]

and seismic waves [You know the song]

Earthquakes occur mostly at the edges of tectonic plates

at faults where the Earth’s crust breaks

 

[You know the song… now hit it]

The Richter scale measures magnitude

An earthquake of 4 can be felt by most humans

2 means small and 7 means huge

When earthquakes hit the best thing to do

is hide under cover in the center of the room

cos buildings are often designed to stand through these shakes

And these quakes occur on the moon and the sun too

You know the song, now sing the tune

 

Seismology is the science of studying earthquakes

and seismic waves

Rocks stretch and squeeze like a spring released during an earthquake

And seismic waves are body waves or surface waves

 

 

Seismology is the science of studying earthquakes

and seismic waves

Rocks stretch and squeeze like a spring released during an earthquake

Seismic waves are body waves or surface waves

 

Seismology is the science of studying earthquakes

and seismic waves

 

Seismology is the science of studying earthquakes
