Pwaves are Primary waves initially released from the Focus of an earthquake. A Pwave is a longitudinal wave or a compression wave with the force applied in the direction that the wave is travelling. These waves compress and expand and are called primary waves because they are the first waves to reach the seismometer.

Swaves are secondary waves that vibrate in a transverse direction (from side and side as well as up and down). Swaves are not able to travel through liquids unlike Pwaves. P and Swaves are known collectively as body waves because they travel within materials. Surface waves on the other hand travel along the outer surface of a material and are split into two main types, the Love wave and the Rayleigh wave. Surface waves cause high amplitude motions of the Earth's surface and are the most damaging to buildings.
