Peter Parker here and today we will be exploring P and S waves along with Seismic Wave data and the Seismograph. Lets begin!
P and S waves are two types of body waves. Their depth is typically between 50-250 kilometers.
Up here, we can accurately observe the effects of P and S waves.
P waves travel faster than S waves so they can travel through thick rock and dense fluids.
S waves, however, can travel only travel through thick rock because of how slow it travels
Lets talk about seismic wave data
Seismic wave data helps record the Earths interior through waves
To get seismic wave data we need a seismograph
A seismograph is an instrument used to detect earthquakes in the Earth
Like I said before, Seismographs detect earthquakes but can also help us understand the interior of Earth
I hope you've learned something today. This is Peter Parker signing off.
