Quick Reference

A seismic wave which travels along a boundary between two media of contrasting properties, rather than propagating through the bodies of the media (compare body wave). Where the boundary is a free surface (e.g. ground–air, sea bed–sea water) these waves are called surface waves and give rise to ground roll and mud roll respectively. Boundary waves are of two types: Love waves and Rayleigh waves.
