    okay so P-waves are type of elastic wave, also called seismic waves, that can travel through gases and A type of seismic wave, the S-wave, secondary wave, or shear wave

    Love and Rayleigh waves both produce ground shaking at the Earth’s surface but very little motion deep in the Earth. Because the amplitude of surface waves diminishes less rapidly with distance than the amplitude of P or S waves, surface waves are often the most important component of ground shaking far from the earthquake source, thus can be the most destructive.
