I think it might be a bit misleading to have the P-wave shadow diagram on the S-wave page - the caption makes sense but a casual observer will probably just glance and think the waves in the diagram are S-waves. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.171.98.21 (talk) 14:39, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

s-wave[edit]

the s-wave is a awesome thing that was discovered! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.49.30.66 (talk) 23:06, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

== waves ==But they are so lame!§

i love leaning about the s-wave p-wave and surface wave i like that it is on wikipedia! this site has every thing:) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.49.30.66 (talk) 23:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Duration[edit]

How long do s waves typically last for in an earthquake? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.75.92.83 (talk) 09:53, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

General and seismic meaning[edit]

Shear waves are not limited to seismic applications. As the article also handles the general shear-waves, this should be handled fist, though its names S-wave and not shear wave. The name S-waves and even more secondary wave seems to be more specific for seismic shear waves. The introduction is rather long anyway, at least for an article with automatic table of contend. So I suggest moving much of the more specific seismic part down to a section like "seismic waves". Ulrich67 (talk) 19:52, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
