Scientific research shows that a tectonic earthquake is generally caused by underground water erosion or volcanic eruption instead of inter-continental plate collision. According to this new law, it is easy to explain many past great earthquakes around the world and predict some future possible earthquake foci by observing landforms. These research results are important for economic protection against earthquakes and reducing disasters. Especially, according to this new discovery, many digital seismograph networks in the world can be improved. Through on-the-spot investigation or observing topographical maps, one can find that many areas in Jiangxi Province of China lack underground water, and the possibility of devastating earthquakes occurring in these areas is vey low. Hence, the observation on these areas can be lessened. But, some areas such as Jiujiang, Poyang, and Huichang are seismic risk areas, and the observation on these areas should be enhanced.
