Seismic waves

Top best answers to the question «Which type of seismic wave travels the slowest»

S-waves are slower than P-waves, and speeds are typically around 60% of that of P-waves in any given material. Shear waves can't travel through any liquid medium, so the absence of S-wave in earth's outer core suggests a liquid state.

They are slower than body waves, roughly 90% of the velocity of S waves for typical homogeneous elastic media.
