Introduction         The world today is faced with great challenges to produce adequate food, fiber, feed, industrial products and ecosystem services for the globe's 6.4 billion people. With nearly 80 million people are being added every year, and ecosystem goods and services must be developed to meet 8 billion by the year 2025 and over 12 billion by 2050. About 84% of this growth is expected to occur in the developing countries (Xiaobing et al., 2008)....
Plate boundaries associated with earthquakes include the divergent, converge. is evidenced by such plates moving towards each other resulting into either continental collision or subduction zone (Walker, 2007) Intra plate zones are region that lies in the interior tectonic plate zone commonly associated with intraplate earthquake. Intraplate zones includes of basin and range, as well as mid-continent zones. There are six types of waves associated with earthquakes, Body waves and...
