Definition: surface wave associated with the free boundary of a solid or liquid such that a surface particle describes an ellipse whose major axis is normal to the surface, and whose centre is situated on the initially undisturbed surface

NOTE 1 – At maximum particle displacement away from this initially undisturbed surface the motion of the particle is opposite to that of the wave.

NOTE 2 – The propagation velocity of a Rayleigh wave is slightly less than that of a shear wave in the solid. The wave amplitude of the Rayleigh wave diminishes exponentially with depth.
