"Antiseismic" could be more readily understood than "aseismic" which can be
ambiguous.  "Antiseismic" is a common term in Europe and Asia, particularly
Greece.

Many if not most of the general public don't know what the word "seismic"
means - even in California. If they have an inclination of what it means,
few know how to spell it. So if you can, its best  to stick to the term
"earthquake."
