A unification of the theories of Biot and Weiskopf has been made to form the suitable equations of motion for porous water saturated soils and marine sediments. It has been shown that the velocities of the body waves depend on the direction of propagation. In the vertical direction there are three, one distortional and two dilatational waves. In the horizontal direction there are two dilatational and two distortional waves. Finally, propagation of Love waves and Rayleigh waves have been discussed. Suitable potential functions have been derived to find the frequency equation for Rayleigh waves.
