It is a seismic wave that effects the surface of the land by causing it to rise and fall like waves in an ocean. Seismic waves can be broken down into a number of different types. Specifically, it is a Raleigh surface wave that behaves much like water waves since it moves the ground up and down as it travels. Seismic waves are produced in earthquakes.
