Intensity Richter vs. Moment-magnitude[edit]

Keep n mind that the Chinese authorities use the w:Richter magnitude scale while the USGS uses the w:Moment magnitude scale, so indeed they're not really conflicting. These are two different scales. However scince Richter was used for decades also the English language press is messing up both of them. --Matthiasb (talk) 10:20, 14 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
