Understanding electro-magnetic surveys

Electromagnetic surveying is one of the least well understood of the non-seismic exploration techniques. There are various acquisition choices to be made - for example it can be undertaken using both horizontal and vertical transmitters/receivers. To understand the physics it pays off to use an analogy with heat waves.
