Can diff. EM frequencies create diff. magnetic fields with diff. properties ?

    ¿ Can diff. EM frequencies create diff. magnetic fields with diff. properties ?

    I understand that a magnetic field is generated via moving charged particles . Electricity and magnetism are linked through electromagnetism . Electromagnetism can be in different wavelengths and frequencies but does this mean that magnetism and magnetic fields are at different wavelengths ? I know magnetic fields aren't waves but can different electromagnetic frequencies generate different magnetic fields with different properties ?

    NO magnetic field is Fundamental in nature. It cant have diffrent properties.

    EMW have diffrent wavelength and properties because they depend on *THE RATE OF CHANGE OF MAGNITUDE MAGNETIC FIELD* not on the properties of magnetic field
