Paper Abstract

Presented herein is a method for the interpretation of electromagnetic (EM) response in sea- water. The method is based upon similarities between the EM wave equation in lossless media, and the EM diffusion equation in conductive media. The technique allows for the transformation between the solution in the two propagation modes. The advantages of the technique are its simple implementation and its generality to a wide variety of cases. Application to mine hunting including conducting and nonconducting mines are simulated. Advantages and limitations of the method are discussed. The technique is also applicable to interpretation of time-dependent heat flow.
