Every year, the world is hit by a large number of earthquakes, which result in enormous damage, not only in terms of mortality rate but also adversely weaken the socio-economical spine of any nation. Recent years have evidenced a comprehensive study about seismic activities and the various phenomena associated to such events. An interesting and relatively nascent subject related to earthquakes is the generation of Ultra Low Frequency and the Extremely Low Frequency emissions, that account for changes in the electric and the magnetic field prior to moderate as well as strong earthquakes. This paper attempts to emphasize on and discuss the association of ULF and ELF waves in context to the seismic activities. Also some of the intricate causes pertaining to generation mechanism of such electric burst are discussed.
