8.16 A 0.5 MHz antenna carried by an airplane flying overthe ocean surface generates a wave that approaches the watersurface in the form of a normally incident plane wave withan electric-field amplitude of 3,000 (V/m). Seawater ischaracterized by !r = 72, µr = 1, and σ = 4 (S/m). The planeis trying to communicate a message to a submarine submergedat a depth d below the water surface. If the submarine’s receiverrequires a minimum signal amplitude of 0.01 (µV/m), what isthe maximum depth d to which successful communication isstill possible?
