Abstract

In this paper, analytical formulas have been derived for the electromagnetic field generated by a horizontal electric dipole inside high lossy half-space coated with a dielectric layer. This problem is corresponding to the electromagnetic field generated by a horizontal antenna in a submarine under an ice layer, or the measurement of the conductivity of the oceanic lithosphere with a horizontal antenna as the source, and a layer of sediment on the sea floor. These formulas obtained for the electromagnetic field can be employed to calculated the total field including the lateral-wave term and the trapped-surface-wave term. Because the wave number of the trapped-surface-wave term is different from that of the lateral-wave term, the interference appears in the total field. Additionally, this paper has presented the approximative formulas for a thin dielectric layer, which can be used for the communication in low frequencies region.
