Previously, EMP fields from nuclear surface bursts have been extrapolated to points far beyond the source region by use of a multipole extrapolation based on perfect ground conductivity. This report presents a method for correcting the extrapolated fields to account for actual ground impedance. The method is shown to compare favorably with Sommerfelds solution for a dipole radiating over a flat earth. Author
