Abstract:

The report begins by presenting a general solution for the electromagnetic field induced by an irrotational flow field using Amperes law and Faradays law and show that fields are determined by an electromagnetic potential function and a velocity potential function. Then it determines solutions corresponding to progressive waves in a horizontally stratified ocean. It investigates fields produced by progressive waves in a deep ocean and then considers fields produced by progressive waves in shallow seas. In each case, it presents fields produced by both surface and internal waves in both polar and equatorial regions. Finally, it gives complete expressions for electromagnetic potential functions corresponding to surface and internal waves.
