SEISMIC WAVES
Also called Primary Waves
Longitudinal wave, so the waves compress and expand the rock like it was a spring toy.
Since P Waves can still travel slowly through liquid, P Waves go to the other side of the globe, and it can be detected by a seismograph.
Also called Secondary Waves
Secondary waves are transverse waves
Secondary Waves cannot travel through liquid
Since the core is liquid, Secondary Waves cannot travel to the other side of the globe, so scientists cannot detect Secondary Waves on the opposite side of the earthquake.
Direction of wave
Direction of wave
When P Waves and S Waves reach Earth's surface, they create surface waves.
Combination of a longitudinal wave and a transverse wave
Move slower than S Waves and P Waves. However, they cause the most damage.
The up and down, side to side motion makes the surface roll like a wave.
