The phenomenon of induced polarization is treated as an induced electromotive force, leading to a polarization constant which is included in the effective resistivity of polarizable materials, such as earth materials. The transmission of sinusoidal electromagnetic waves through a polarizable earth is treated for frequencies above 30 cps. The polarization induced in a two-layer earth is treated theoretically and calculations are presented.
