TELLURIC CURRENTS: THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AND INTERACTIONS WITH MAN-MADE SYSTEMS 250 understanding. Hence, research in this area would appear to be poised for achieving significant new understanding. Investigations using, and studying, the telluric currents suffer from three principal drawbacks: (a) the spatial coverage by the recording equipment is often too sparse compared to the extent and spatial gradients of the phenomena under investigation; (b) there is not general agreement on the experiment and analysis methodologies, often leading to difficulties when comparing the results from different investigations; and (c) the use, within the general understanding of deep geophysical structures, of the information provided by electromagnetic techniques is often neglected. It is hoped that these deficiences will be ameliorated in future telluric current work. Telluric currents are a relevant part of our electromagnetic environment, both as a consequence of the time- varying natural electromagnetic field and as a consequence of moving seawater. Human interactions with telluric currents and their related effects are definitely important, even though such interactions are only incompletely understood. A considerable effort on geomagnetic source characteristics and Earth conductivity characteristics are required before a satisfactory and comprehensive understanding can be achieved. The critical role of telluric currents within the geophysical environment, encompassing such areas as the Earth's astronomical motion, to current channeling, to eventual implications for ocean-water motion, still appears as a challenging frontier. As well, further assessments must be made on the actual role of telluric currents, as well as of the geomagnetic field in toto, on biological systems. The field is multidisciplinary and fascinating. Substantial achievements can be expected in the near future. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank the referees and F. J. Lowes for helpful comments and references. References Achace, J., J. L. LeMouel, and V.
