The present article attempts to study the propagation of surface seismic waves (Stoneley waves) in the layered structure composed of rock and ice medium. The interface between the two media (ice and rock) is considered to be frictional. Mathematical model of the present problem is formulated by adapting the Coulomb frictional boundary conditions. The frequency relation is obtained in the determinant form. The non-dispersive nature of the Stoneley wave is observed through the frequency relation. The non-dimensional phase velocity and damping parameter curves have been plotted against the non-dimensional angular frequency. Effect of different parameters (viscoelastic coefficient of the rock medium, frictional interface parameter, anisotropy parameter and initial stress of both the media) on the phase velocity and damping has been distinctly marked and shown graphically.
