By making use of the analogy between the network quantities and the electromagnetic fields, a numerical method is employed to investigate the possible topographic effect in the earth's EM fields for several simple models in two dimensional problems. It is found that various topographies may give rise to distortions in the earth's EM fields, and some EM anomalies observed on the ground surface may be simply due to such a topographic effect.
