Abstract: The initial-value problem of waves in superposed fluids which are otherwise unlimited due to an axisymmetrical oscillatory pressure is solved by the method of integral transforms. The wave integral representing interfacial displacement is evaluated in an asymptotic form that remains uniformly valid through the transition zone.
