Seismic wave

Explore the fascinating world of seismic waves and learn how they shape our planet. Discover the different types of seismic waves and their effects, and gain a deeper understanding of earthquakes and tectonic activity.

Seismic waves are waves that travel through or over Earth. They are usually generated by movements of the Earth's tectonic plates (earthquakes) but may also be caused by explosions, volcanoes and landslides. They can tell us much about the Earth's structure.
