From Eric Weisstein's World of Physics, this page is the index for all sections related to electromagnetic waves. A useful site for quick brief information
Description of electromagnetic waves, which move energy through empty space (a vacuum), stored as part of an electric and magnetic field.
Animated diagrams of two superposing transverse waves and their resultant. Wavelength, phase and amplitude are adjustable. Uses the word "interference" instead of "superposition".
The basics of gravitational waves explained in simple terms.
Short article about gravitational waves and how they might be detected, including by the LISA mission.
Simple details on transverse and longitudinal waves including diagrams.
A collection of physics lessons about light waves and colour
Short article on the hunt for gravitational waves - distortions or the warping of the very fabric of space-time, which Einstein described as different aspects of reality itself.
A tutorial from the Physics Classroom that clearly explains the nature, properties and behaviour of sound waves and music, with good animations.
Useful information driven site which provides details on both how light can be considered a wave and the relationship between waves and colour.
