The distortion tensor of magnetotellurics: a tutorial on some properties

Lilley, Frederick E. M.


A 2×2 matrix is introduced which relates the electric field at an observing site where geological distortion applies to the regional electric field, which is unaffected by the distortion. For the student of linear algebra this matrix provides a practical example with which to demonstrate the basic and important procedures of eigenvalue analysis and singular value decomposition. The significance of the results can be visualised because the eigenvectors of such a telluric distortion matrix have a...[Show more]
