Measurements of the distortions of the magnetic and electric fields over a conducting body have been made on a model that emphasizes the effect of channelling of a current field, rather than electromagnetic induction. Certain effects observed on the model are similar to those which have been described for the Alert anomaly, and it is suggested that the conduction mechanism offers an explanation of some of the hitherto puzzling features at Alert.
