Listen to the Sound of an Earthquake

Seismogram shows a recording in California during a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in Alaska in 2002. By playing the seismic data 200 times faster, humans can hear the primary P wave of the Alaska earthquake like distant thunders, as well as the rattle-snake-like tremor signals on the San Andreas fault that were triggered by the surface wave of the Alaska earthquake.
