Caption: Beno Gutenberg (1889-1960), German-US seismologist. Gutenberg collaborated with Charles Richter in developing the famous Richter scale of earthquake magnitude. They also calculated the relationship between the seismic magnitude of an earthquake and the energy, allowing calculation of the energy of the seismic waves produced by a quake. Their Gutenberg-Richter law shows that the number of earthquakes of a given magnitude each year has a distinct statistical pattern, with smaller ones being vastly more common than large ones. Gutenberg was born in Germany but moved to the USA in 1929 to work with Richter at Caltech.
