The Richter magnitude scale is a scale that measures the size of an earthquake based on its power. Every order of magnitude has ten times the power of the previous magnitude, thus a quake measuring 6.0 would have ten times more power and energy than a 5.0. The two largest earthquakes ever recorded were in 2012, the 11.0 Ethiopia earthquake, and the 10.7 Iceland earthquake.
