What Are L Waves?

Answer

L-waves are seismic waves that cause a shaking or movement of the ground that moves in a pattern that resembles a snake's movement. The L wave is usually third to be measured by a seismograph (the instrument used to measure the severity of an earthquake). L-waves or 'Love waves' cause the most damage because they travel nearer to the Earths surface. You can find more information here: http://www.wwnorton.com/college/geo/earth2/glossary/l.htm
