An electromagnetic depth sounding in which the frequency or time are varied while holding the geometry constant, as opposed to geometric sounding where the frequency is held constant and the geometry is varied. Observations can be made at different times after the primary field is extinguished. Used to resolve resistivity layering assuming that the layering is horizontal. See polarization ellipse.
