When a uniform ground has a conductivity which may be described by a Cole-Cole relaxation model with a positive time constant, then the transient response of such a ground will show evidence of induced polarization (IP) effects. The IP effects cause the transient initially to decay quite rapidly and to reverse polarity. After this reversal the transient decays much more slowly, the decay at this stage being about the same rate as a nonpolarizable ground.
