making the signal ring...

'Earth’s smoother texture means sound waves from seismic activity can propagate through the rock, whereas on Mars they are more likely to scatter, making the signal ring.'

This does not make sense to me. Shirley if something is cracked it does not ring as well as something that is not cracked. Bells, cups and wheels on trains spring to mind.
