Based on the lab, what factor impacts the speed of seismic waves?
How are P-waves and S-waves different from each other in terms of their speed and ability to propagate through different types of materials?
The largest earthquake ever recorded was a magnitude 9.5 in Chile in 1960. Earthquake epicenters can be located from over 5,000 miles away using seismographs.
Did you know?
Epicenter Focus Seismic Waves A minimum of 3 seismic stations is needed to locate an epicenter.
