Inheritance diagram of DipoleHalfSpace
class geoana.em.static.DipoleHalfSpace(rho, location_a=None, location_b=None, current=1.0)#

Class for a dipole in a halfspace.

The DipoleHalfSpace class is used to analytically compute the potentials, current densities and electric fields within a halfspace due to a dipole source. Surface is assumed to be at z=0.

Parameters
currentfloat

Electrical current in the point current (A). Default is 1A.

rhofloat

Resistivity in the point current (\(\Omega \cdot m\)).

location_aarray_like

Location of the A current source electrode (m). Default is (-1, 0, 0).

location_barray_like

Location of the B current sink electrode (m). Default is (1, 0, 0).

Attributes

current

Current in the dipole in Amps.

location_a

Location of the A current source electrode.

location_b

Location of the B current sink electrode.

rho

Resistivity in the dipole in \(\Omega \cdot m\).
