Abstract:

Power patterns are presented for VLF radiation 500 Hz to 30 kHz from magnetic and electric dipole sources in a two-component lossy magnetoplasma. The patterns show that energy tends to be transported primarily along the magnetic axis of a confinement cone for higher VLF frequencies, but that the inclusion of ion motion destroys the confinement cone for extremely low frequencies.
