Seismic Waves

Quake Location

This week’s investigation continues to examine seismic waves, but this time the emphasis is on how those waves propagate through and around Earth… and in turn provide evidence for Earth’s layered interior. There are a number of our animations featured in the exercise, as well as our Seismic Waves simulation for visualizing how seismic waves propagate through and around Earth’s surface. We hope you will find it useful, and your students find it enjoyable and educative!
