This is a further development of the methodology for solution of electrodynamic problems for the case of gradient anisotropic media when the axes of the medium form quite small angles with the surface. This model approximates the geoelectric situation in the crystalline structures of the Baltic shield, where there is a contancy of the tilt of ancient rocks at angles from 45 to 60 deg to a depth of 11 km. The problem is examined in relation to work with pulsed magnetohydrodynamic generators. A geoelectric structure containing one-dimensional anisotropic layers is considered. The structure is assumed to be uniaxial, with the dielectric constant and magnetic permeability being continuous functions only of the z-coordinate. A method for solving electrodynamic problems is given for such media (the generalized functions method is employed). A fundamental solution is given for a system of Maxwell equations, represented in the for of a convergent series, whose terms are computed using recurrent formulas.
