New Delhi: The protective self-quarantine and lockdown measures around the world due to COVID-19 scare have reduced the human-caused seismic noise, as a result of which earthquakes of smaller magnitudes can be detected with more accuracy and specificity, say scientists, adding however that this has not made the Earth's crust shake less. Seismic noise is a relatively persistent vibration of the ground that is usually an unwanted component of signals recorded by seismometers, according to the scientists. Earlier studies have reported that human activity of all kinds generates these vibrations that distort measurements from finely tuned seismic instruments. While the lockdowns enforced in many parts of the world have reduced these disturbances, seismologists, including Supriyo Mitra, a professor at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Kolkata, believe it is wrong to say that the Earth's crust is now "moving or shaking slowly" as has been reported in several … [Read more...] about COVID-19 lockdowns didn’t make Earth shake less, but improved quake detection, scientists say
