Existence and asymptotic behavior of the Stoneley surface wave at vacuum/porous medium interface are investigated in the low frequency range. It is shown that the Stoneley wave possesses a bifurcation in the vicinity of critical wave number 𝑘cr. It is proven also that within the 𝑘-domain of existence, the Stoneley wave cannot appear for certain values of elastic moduli of the solid phase. Asymptotic formulae for the phase velocity of the Stoneley wave are presented.
