The real and imaginary components of the response of a conductor with leakage are enhanced when both the "leakage factor" and "leakage parameter" are positive. Pure galvanic contact cannot cause enhancement in both real and imaginary components of the response. The model results with so-called "galvanic contact" in all probability would give even qualitatively misleading results because leakage factor and leakage parameter for model experiment and field conditions are expected to be widely different.--Modified journal abstract.
