Seismic waves are studied by seismologists and measured by a seismograph or seismometer. Surface waves span a wide frequency range, and the period of waves that are most damaging is usually 10 seconds or longer. Surface waves can travel around the globe many times from the largest earthquakes. Surface waves are caused when P waves and S waves come to the surface. His theory pretended to explain every feature of the auditory sensation owing to these passive mechanical phenomena. Earth, following the curvature of the Earth. 3 MHz, travel efficiently as ground waves.

Increasing the conductivity in a surface results in less dissipation. The refractive indices are subject to spatial and temporal changes. Since the ground is not a perfect electrical conductor, ground waves are attenuated as they follow the earth’s surface. The wavefronts initially are vertical, but the ground, acting as a lossy dielectric, causes the wave to tilt forward as it travels.

Ground losses become lower at lower frequencies, greatly increasing the coverage of AM stations using the lower end of the band. The VLF and LF frequencies are mostly used for military communications, especially with ships and submarines. The lower the frequency the better the waves penetrate sea water. HF for commercial and military purposes became apparent. Amateur experimentation was then confined only to authorized frequencies in the range. This prevents skywave propagation from being very effective on mediumwave frequencies in daylight hours.

At night, when the D layer dissipates, mediumwave transmissions travel better by skywave. For coax of common impedance this mode is effectively suppressed but in high impedance coax and on a single central conductor without any outer shield, low attenuation and very broadband propagation is supported. Zenneck wave, with almost the same wavelength as the free-space wavelength. The wave propagates parallel to the interface and decays exponentially vertical to it, a property called evanescence. Since the wave is on the boundary of a lossy conductor and a second medium, these oscillations can be sensitive to changes to the boundary, such as the adsorption of molecules by the conducting surface.

This surface wave propagates parallel to the interface and decays exponentially vertical to it, a property known as evanescence. Copyright status of work by the U.
