This is a long distance from the earthquake to the seismometer, so assume the body waves dove vertically, bottomed out, and came back up vertically. A) Consider direct arrivals (P, SV, SH). When these body waves bottomed out, which direction was the particle motion for each wave? Why do the waves bottom out and return to the surface?
