The American Miscellaneous Society formed in 1952 when Office of Naval Research geophysicists Gordon Lill and Carl Alexis found themselves handling research proposals that fit into no existing scientific categories.
Secondary or shear wave (sometimes called an elastic S-wave) is one of the two main types of elastic body waves that move through the body of an object, unlike surface waves. The S-wave moves as a transverse wave, so motion is perpendicular to the direction of wave propagation. See p-wave.
Seismic wave can travel through gases, elastic solids, and liquids, including the Earth. Can be produced by earthquakes and recorded by seismometers. This primary wave is faster than the S-wave. Discovery of the speed increase of p-waves across Lehmann Discontinuity suggests Earth has a solid core.
