The influence of the gravity, rotation and magnetic field on the propagation of Rayleigh waves in a prestressed inhomogeneous, orthotropic elastic solid medium has been discussed. The method of separation of variable is used to find the frequency equations of the surface waves. The obtained dispersion equations are in agreement with the classical results when gravity, rotation, magnetic field, non-homogeneity and initial stress are neglected. The effect of various inhomogeneities on Rayleigh waves have also been represented graphically.
