The paper presents a theoretical formulation for studying scattering of Rayleigh waves due to the presence of rigid barriers in oceanic waters. The Wiener-Hopf technique has been employed to solve the problem. Exact solution has been obtained in terms of Fourier integrals whose evaluation gives the reflected, transmitted and scattered waves. The scattered waves have the behaviour of cylindrical waves originating at the edge of the barrier. Numerical results for the amplitude of the scattered waves have been obtained for small depth of the barrier.

The problem of scattering of Love waves due to the presence of a rigid barrier of finite depth in the crusfal layer of the earth is studied in the present paper. The barrier is in the slightly dissipative surface layer and the surface of the layer is a free surface. The Wiener-Hopf technique is the method of solution. Evaluation of the integrals along appropriate contours in the complex plane yields the reflected, transmitted and the scattered waves. The scattered waves behave as a decaying cylindrical wave at distant points. Numrical computations for the amplitude of the scattered waves have been made versus the wave number. The amplitude falls off rapidly as the wave number increases very slowly.
