    Seismic/earthquake countermeasures

    Is there any difference in meaning between "seismic countermeasures" and "earthquake countermeasures"?

    Re: Seismic/earthquake countermeasures

    Seismic activity includes even those movements of the earth which cannot be felt at the surface. These lesser movements would not be classified as earthquakes. So yes, there is a difference in meaning.
