Jump to: navigation, search

Pertaining to waves of elastic energy, such as that transmitted by P-waves and S-waves, in the frequency range of approximately 1 to 100 Hz. Seismic energy is studied by scientists to interpret the composition, fluid content, extent and geometry of rocks in the subsurface. "Seismic," used as an adjective, is preferable to "seismics," although "seismics" is used commonly as a noun.
