Answers

Answer:

Explanation:

  • Seismic Stations are dedicated centers where the natural movements of ground are recorded on a seismograph (an equipment specially designed to trace the intensity of the earthquake).
  • These stations are equipped with the required tools and technology to determine the hypo-center or the seismic focus of an earthquake which is usually deep below the Earth's surface.
