Changes in the state of stress in the Earth's crust produces corresponding changes in the state of strain and may result, as a consequence, in damaging earthquakes. Monitoring ground strain can, therefore, help us in understanding how stress changes occur and when they are likely to lead to this kind of abrupt release of seismic energy.
