This paper develops the theory of the propagation of waves through a horizontally stratified compressible liquid under the influence of gravity, with two simplifying assumptions: (1) The wave amplitudes are small, so that a linear or first-order theory suffices; (2) the liquid is assumed to be shallow so that the lengths of all waves are large in comparison with the liquid depth.
