Abstract
An overview of electromagnetic propagation in seawater is discussed with some applications found in the literature. An experiment involving vertical dipoles submerged in seawater was performed to measure the frequency response at different ranges. The experimental results indicate that this dipole configuration can be effectively modeled as two vertical dipoles in a homogenous medium. Lastly, we provide a brief description of the current state of development of our underwater electric field modem.
