Fascinating facts about earthquakes
All earthquakes create P waves and S waves that travel through the body of the Earth. P waves are compression waves that compress rocks and expand them as they pass through the Earth.
Love waves and Rayleigh waves are only produced during large earthquakes. They only travel along the surface of the Earth. Sometimes they will travel around the surface of the Earth several times they stop.
The inner and outer core of the Earth were discovered using earthquake waves. The outer core was discovered by a scientist studying S waves that stopped when they reached a boundary inside the Earth. S waves do not travel through liquids only solids.
