An earthquake is the shaking of the ground caused by the sudden release of energy in the form of waves called seismic waves. The location in the Earth’s surface where the earthquake starts is called the hypocenter or also known as focus. The surface directly above the focus is called epicenter. S...
The Earth is divided into three layers: the Crust, the Mantle, and the Core. The crust is the Earth's outermost, thinnest, rocky layer, where we live. The layer beneath the crust is known as the mantle. It is the...
Seismic waves move at different speeds depending on the materials they are encountering. Earthquakes cause different types of seismic waves: BODY WAVES and SURFACE WAVES. The surface waves can only travel through Earth’s surface while bod...
Waves travelling through Earth’s surface are the surface waves. The surface waves are the slowest travelling seismic waves and arrive after the body waves. They are responsible for the damage and destruction related with earthquakes. There are two types of surface waves: LOVE WAVES
There are two types of body waves. The first type of body wave is the P (Primary) wave. P waves are the fastest travelling seismic wave, push and pull the materials they encounter, the first wave you feel in an earthquake and can move through solids and liquids.
The second ...
The waves of energy that travel through the Earth because of earthquakes enable scientists to tell us a lot about the internal structure of the Earth. Seismic waves move at different speeds when they travel through different types of materials they are encountering. As the body w...
