Abstract:

The field scattered by an ungrounded conducting sphere above a ground plane is considered. The quasi-static solution is facilitated by the use of bispherical coordinates. The approximate solution obtained by considering only the interaction of dipole modes with the interface is presented, for comparison. The general results are used to calculate the backscatter of a low frequency ground wave by a small obstacle. Author
