Polarization(alsopolarisation) is a property ofwavesthat canoscillatewith more than one orientation.Electromagnetic waves, such as light, andgravitational wavesexhibit polarization, this does not happen withsound wavesin a gas or liquid, in which it can have only one possible polarization - the direction in which the wave is travelling.
