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.

    I like how you used detail to make the answers make sense and using correct answers.

  8. @ Salina Flores

    I like your answer for number 2 it explained what it tells and how. Good job.

  9. Good job Stetson, your number two was confusing but other than that your answers were the same as mine! Good job!

  10. Garrett Byerly
    Surface waves S waves and P waves are the 3 types of waves
    It tells us how dense the layers of the earth
    Crust mantle inner outer core
    S waves
    The lithosphere is made up from the crust and upper part of the mantle
    3 falts are digergant transforming and convergent

  11. @ Tyler Carda
    5. You only answered part of the question and the lithosphere is broken up into 8 large pieces and a few smaller ones.

    ~Shelby Mueller

  12. @Emily k.: It's surface waves, not secondary waves. S waves are secondary waves. Pretty close though!

    -Katie Arndt

  13. 1) p wave S wave and surface waves
    2) if it is solid liquid how big it is ext.

  14. 1. P waves, S waves, Surface waves,
    2. They travel differently through different materials telling us of earths enterior.
    3. The crusty the mantle, the outer core, and the inner core!
    4. S waves
    5. The lithosphere is made up of the upper mantle and crust.
    6. The three types of faults are convergent, divergent, and transform.
    Seismic waves come from Earthquakes, which are studied by seismologists, who typically have previously studied seismology, which is the study of earthquakes and faults, which are where earthquakes typically occur.

  15. Hey Trevor Brown you for number 2 you could also put that we know the earth is part liquid.

    Brandon Gannon

  16. 1. Body waves which includes primary and secondary waves, and surface waves which is love waves and Rayleigh waves.
    2. They can tell where different materials are of where the earth changes form ( solid or liquid) because of how fast it goes.
    3. Crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core.
    4. S waves can not go through liquids
    5. The lithosphere is made up of the crust and upper part of the mantle. It is broken up into eight big pieces and a few smaller pieces.
    6. Transform, convergent, and divergent are all faults.

  24. There is p waves, S waves, surface waves

    Where denser areas in the earth are and wether or not it is a liquid or a solid

    Crust, mantle, inner core, outer core

    The lithosphere is made up of thrust and the upper part of the mantle

    Three types of faults are divergent, convergent, and transforming

    5. It includes the crust and the upper part of the mantle
    6. Divergent, convergent, and transform

  28. The three types of waves S waves,Pwaves, Surface waves. The things that these waves show is the interior of the earth and what is looks like and all the layers. The layers of the earth are the crust,mantle outer core and inner core. The waves that can not go through liquid is S waves. The lithosphere is the whole core and the upper part of the mantle and is broken up into 8 large plates and several small plates. The 3 types of faults are divergent,convergent,transform.
