When a large earthquake occurs, geophysicists have many tools at their disposal to determine the properties of the fault (or faults) that ruptured during the earthquake. The fields of seismology, which is the study of ground motions, and geodesy, the study of ground positions, are two of the main ways that geophysics researchers investigate earthquakes.
