In fact, analysis of the fields, or of induced currents within the earth, leads to information about the electrical conductivity within the earth, because of the dependence of the fields observed at the earth's surface upon the conductivity of the medium ( 4 5 1 5 0 , 1 6 )5 The particular relevance of such measurements to us beneath. ' is that the oceanic mantle may differ from the continental mantle, and quantitative estimates of the difference in electrical properties can be deduced from observations of the time-varying magnetic fields.
