Comparisons of vertical and horizontal earth current components at separated locations have been made by comparing power density spectra of consecutive hourly intervals of data for continuous recording periods. The results indicate that both horizontal and vertical components are similar at separated locations, that the similarity in the dominant period improves at times of low-level geomagnetic activity, and that the vertical component at a location can have the same order of magnitude as the horizontal components.
