Seismic energy

That part of the potential energy released during an earthquake, an explosion or another type of seismic source that is converted into elastic seismic waves that propagate away from the source through the Earth and cause vibrating ground motions. The ratio between seismic energy Es and seismic moment Mo is proportional to the stress drop Δσ in the seismic source.
