Richter is measuring not only the FORCE of the jolt but also the scope
of land affected by the jolt, thus, using a word common here on
sci.astro, the overall "energy" of the shifting plates is measured by
the Richter. It's being assumed in these discussions that the
exponential increase in Richter would translate to the effect on an
object on the surface, such that if in a Richter x a man in a field is
knocked off his feet and a brick structure shaken to the point of having
the brick mortar crack, than Richter y would cause that man to be dashed
against anything but thin air in the vicinity and the brick structure to
become powder, or some such. A cup of cocoa may fly off the table and
hit the floor if a child bumps the table or if the table happens to be
on a moving train smashing another in a head-on collision. The effect
on the cup may be the same, dashed to the floor, but the overall
"energy" of the incident surrounding the cup is different. From
Weak spots among the Earth's crustal plates give way.
The Pacific Ocean will shorten, and the Atlantic widen.
Subducting plates will subduct greatly. Mountain
building will occur suddenly, primarily increasing in
areas already undergoing mountain building. All told,
the better part of an hour, but at certain stages, only
minutes. Plants survive as they are rooted and their
seeds are everywhere, and animals including man
survive because they travel with the moving plates of
the Earth and experience no more severe a shock when
the plates stop moving than they would during a
Richter 9 earthquake. Where mountain building
occurs when the plates stop moving, the stoppage is
not simply a sudden jolt, like a car hitting a brick
wall. All is in motion, and the stoppage is more like a
car hitting a barrier of sand filled plastic barrels - a
series of small jolts, occurring in quick succession.
