The natural source fields travel as plane waves and the physics behind these are explained in high detail on the page for fundamentals of natural sources. At the surface of the Earth, the fields are transmitted vertically into the subsurface, creating vertically propagating plane waves that generate sheet currents, as shown below. This fundamentals page provides more details and reflection and transmission for MT.
