In this work an scaling analysis of the liquefaction phenomena is presented. The characteristic scales are obtained by balancing term by term of the well known partial dynamics governing equations (approximation UP). The order of magnitude of the horizontal displacement are very smaller compared with the vertical displacement and therefore the governing equation are only a function of the dependent vertical variables. The UP approximation is reduced and presented in its dimensionless version. This scaling analysis can be used to obtain analytical solutions of the liquefaction phenomena under the action of the water waves.
