Abstract:

The analytic solution of the magnetotelluric fields for an idealized 2-D model which is composed of two segments with diagonal anisotropy underlain by a perfect insulator basement is considered using a quasi-static analytic approach. The analytic magnetotelluric responses for a particular model are presented. The resulting analytic solution could be used to check the numerical solutions given by numerical algorithms before more complex situations are investigated.

Key words: anisotropy, magnetotellurics, analytic solution, two-dimensional
