Abstract
Applications in marine electromagnetics require knowledge of the electromagnetic field propagation from an electric dipole embedded in a multi-layered infinite conducting half space. Various solutions to Maxwell's equations exist for between one and four layers with parallel planar interfaces. Shallow water locations require solutions for multiple sea-bed layer situations and for a non-parallel sea bottom. Applications in northern latitudes require solutions in the presence of a low conductivity ice layer. The present paper outlines a technique which generalizes the solution of Maxwell's equations to an arbitrary number of layers, and which can be extended to a sloping seabed.
