Il dizionario Garzanti mi traduce con "shower" il termine "sciame" inteso sia come cosmico che sismico

seismic swarm as opposed to seismic shower


Explanation:
As I too had the option of the swarm or the shower, I did a web search before I confirmed my answer.
I got quite a few hits for "seismic swarm" and got none for "seismic shower".
I did get "meteor shower", so I presumed that sciame is more applicable as shower in the meteor context and as swarm in the geolological context.
Cheers
Angela
