Short summary
We have obtained new evidence of the existence of strain waves in the Earth based on a statistical analysis of the dynamics of seismicity along the northern boundary of the Amurian plate and the data derived from in situ GPS experimental observations. Our results (the periodicity of the seismic components, spatial cycles of the seismicity maxima and migration rate of earthquakes) allow us to identify the dynamics of seismicity along the northern boundary of the Amurian plate as a wave process.
