Seismic review forum

Please read this article Seismic waves (http://www.geo.mtu.edu/UPSeis/waves.html) and then make a post (reply to this post) about what you know about seismic waves.  Please answer the following questions at least: 
1. What are the three types of waves?
2.  What do they tell us about the interior of the earth?
3. What are the layers of the earth?
4. Which type of waves cannot go though liquids?
5. What is the lithosphere and how is it broken up?
6. What are the three types of plate boundaries?
After you finish your post please go and reply to two other students posts (Reply to their individual posts).  Then check back and see if you have any posts on yours to reply to.

    Just make sure you know that the lithosphere is made up of all the crust and the top part of the mantle😊

    1) The three types of waves are S waves, P waves, and surface waves.
    2) they tell us how dense the earth is inside.
    3) Crust,mantle, outer core, inner core.
    4) S waves.
    5) Crust and upper part of the mantle.
    6) Convergent, Transform, Divergent.

    There are surface waves, p and a waves.
    It tells us how dense parts of the earth are
    The parts of the earth are the crust, mantle, inner core, outer core.
    S waves can travel through water
    Made from crust and upper part of mantle. It's broken up in to plates.
    Divergent, convergent, and transform

    Three types of waves are p waves S waves and surface waves. They tell us what the earth is made of, wether some parts are denser and wether some parts are liquid or solid. The layers of earth are crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core. The seismic waves helped us Learn that the outer Coe is liquid because S waves could not travel through it. The lithosphere is the outer most part of the earth, made up of the crust and the upper mantle. The three types of plate boundaries are divergent, convergent, and transform.

    Number 2 what the different layers of the earth are made out of
    Number 3 crust mantle outer core inner core
    Number 4 S waves
    Number 5 top part of crust and mantle in to plates
    Number 6 divergent transform and convergent

    There is the surface waves, body waves, and Raleigh waves.
    They tell us that the earth has four layers and that three are solid, two are rocky and one is liquid.
    The layers are the crust, mantle, outer core and inner core.
    The p waves go through liquids.
    The lithosphere is broken up into the crust and upper mantle.
    The three plate boundaries are convergent, divergent, and transform.
