      Earthquake, any sudden shaking of the ground caused by the passage of seismic waves through Earth’s rocks. Earthquakes occur most often along geologic faults, narrow zones where rock masses move in relation to one another. Learn more about the causes and effects of earthquakes in this article.

        Most are part of the numbered Maps series or Field Studies Maps series and most of these are geologic quadrangle maps. The Urban Maps Series centers on each Nevada city and includes other types of maps as well as geologic maps, for example, the Reno Folio also contains an Earthquake Hazards Map, Energy Resources Map, Hydrologic Map, Land Use.
