The frequency equation is derived for surface waves in a liquid-saturated porous half-space supporting a double layer, that of inhomogeneous and homogeneous liquids. Asymptotic approximations of Bessel functions are used for long and short wavelength cases. Certain other problems are discussed as special cases. Velocity ratio (phase and group velocity) is obtained as a function of wavenumber and the results are shown graphically.
