Radiation generated by the passage of a monoenergetic electron bunch above the surface wave excited in plane interface between homogeneous media with different dielectric constants is investigated. For the surface wave of general profile the radiation intensity is expressed via the radiated power from a single charge and bunch form factor. Various types of transverse and longitudinal distributions of electrons in the bunch have been considered including Gaussian, asymmetrical Gaussian, two Gaussian and rectangular distribution with asymmetrical exponential tails. Conditions are specified under which the coherent radiation essentially exceeds the incoherent part.
