According to the National Geographic, earthquakes, also called temblors, can be so tremendously destructive, it’s hard to imagine they occur by the thousands every day around the world, usually in the form of small tremors. Some of the simplest questions about earthquakes remain hard to answer. Why do they start? What makes them stop?

Fascinating answers from this distinguished panel of guests:

Gary Gibson, Vice Pres Asian Seismology Commission, Seismology Research Centre, RMIT University, Melbourne

Dr. Shen Zhengkang, professor at the School of Earth and Space Science, Peking University

Dr. Xu Jiandong, Institute of Geology, China Earthquake Administration
