Waves that travel through the earth; either compressional / primary (P) or shear / secondary (S).
A type of seismic wave that transmits energy from an earthquake's focus through the Earth's interior in all directions. See also surface wave.
push-pull or shake earthquake wave traveling through a body of a medium; distinguished from waves traveling along free surface.
A seismic wave that travels through the interior of the earth and is not related to a boundary surface.
a seismic wave that travels through the interior of Earth; the two types are P waves and S waves
A seismic wave that moves through the interior of the earth, as opposed to surface waves that travel near the earth's surface. P and S waves are examples. Each type of wave shakes the ground in different ways.
a vibration from an earthquake that travels deep underground
A seismic wave that can travel through the interior of the earth. P-waves and S-waves are body waves.
A seismic wave that travels through the interior of an elastic material.
Type of seismic wave that travels through the interior of Earth.
A wave-like contraction movement of the entire body passing through the hips, shoulders, arms and head.
