This paper analyzes surface waves (SW) supported by a biaxial metamaterial layer placed between two semi-infinite isotropic media. The metamaterial fabricated by periodic alternating semiconductor and dielectric layers and subjected to an external magnetic field. The magnetic field is applied parallel to the layers. We consider such structure in the long-wave limit so that we apply the effective medium theory to describe the electrodynamic properties. The necessary conditions of SW existence were found in terms of anisotropy of the structure. The dependences of penetration depth and attenuation constant (AC) of SW on the external magnetic field and thicknesses of the layers were examined analytically and numerically.
