Summary
Abstract: The Moment Magnitude Calculator calculates the moment magnitude. Moment magnitude provides the magnitude of an earthquake that corresponds roughly to the older Richter scale. Moment magnitude relates the moment released in an earthquake to earthquake magnitude. Moment is the area of the fault multiplied by the slip on the fault in the event and the shear modulus of the surrounding rock. Moment ... View entire text
