Although the earth is shaken by approximately 80,000 earthquakes every month, not many of them will send you running for the nearest doorway. However, scientists, led by a team at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, have recently started investing more time and research into understanding these subtle vibrations that occur deep in the Earth’s crust.
