In terms of the effective medium method, conditions for the existence of leaky shear surface acoustic waves in a semibounded fine-layered magnetic superlattice consisting of ferrimagnetic and superconducting layers are determined. On this basis, the possibility of a resonance interaction between a surface elastic SH wave propagating in the magnetic superlattice and a shear bulk wave propagating in the adjacent nonmagnetic medium is investigated.
