The study of earthquakes and the structure of the earth via seismic waves. This covers whole earth structure (global seismology) and crustal structure (exploration seismology). Exploration seismology is used in commercial operations, such as oil exploration. There are two types of seismic waves that travel through the interior of the Earth; P-waves

Study of earthquakes, the seismic waves they produce, the processes that cause them, and the effects they have. By examining the global pattern of waves produced by an earthquake, seismologists can deduce the nature of the materials through which they have passed. This leads to an understanding of the Earth's internal structure. On a smaller sc...

Seismology (i; from Greek σεισμός `earthquake` and -λογία `study of`) is the scientific study of earthquakes and the propagation of elastic waves through the Earth or through other planet-like bodies. The field also includes studies of earthquake effects, such as tsunamis as well as diverse seismic sources such as volcanic, tectoni...
