Today is the birthday of Mr. Charles F. Richter (1900) who, with Mr. Beno Gutenberg, invented and developed Seismology and a scale for gauging Earthquakes during the 1930s.
A grand effort and much to be grateful for! They studied California, where there is a lot of Earthquaking. Later on, they expanded their work, sharing with scientists around the world.
We Rhinos think the Earth can use all the study it can get. With Nature, the point is about getting out of the way… in time, when possible.
