Spectral theory is applied to elemental water wave problems for a compressible liquid. Compressibility is introduced primarily to facilitate the spectral representation. Two basic representations are developed. The first (Havelock) expansion is derived from a vertical (z) spectral integration while the second modified Fourier form of Fourier-Bessel form comes from the lateral (x or r) spectrum. Both representations are interrelated by analytic continuation in the spectral space, and are shown to be consistent with existing results when compressibility is suppressed.
