Caption: Earthquake simulation. Digital simulation of the propagation of seismic waves through the Earth during an earthquake. Three internal regions of the Earth are labelled: the inner core, the outer core, and the mantle. There are different types of seismic waves. S-waves are confined to the mantle, while P-waves can travel through the liquid core. In strong earthquakes, seismic waves can run several times around the planet before dying away.
