4.1 SPECTRAL DECOMPOSITION OF THE FIELD IN A SPHERICAL MODEL

As a first step, we must consider a spherical model of the earth (Figure 11). Let the earth, of radius R, have a radial piecewise constant distribution of conductivity, ?(r), and be surrounded by a nonconducting atmosphere. Magnetic permeability of the earth is taken to be equal to the permeability of a vacuum, ? = ?0 = 4? × 10?7 H/m. The model is excited (inductively!) by an external nonuniform magnetic field.

5.1 SPECTRAL DECOMPOSITION OF THE FIELD IN A PLANE MODEL

We will now examine the complete problem, including both inductive and galvanic mechanisms of field excitation (Dmitriev and Berdichevsky, 1979).
