Earth's conductivity

  1. Jan 18, 2004 #1
    I have been examining literature related to charge redistribution at the earths surface and I found an application that treats the earth as a near perfect conductor.

    The articles in the above URLs are discussing an active application of the earth's near zero resistance to an electric current. It is a working application that can't be disputed, but I cannot find reference sources that identify the theory for the near perfect conduction.

    Any sources for the earth conduction theory?
